Bongeunsa Temple, Seoul, Korea


Here is the sketch I did with my son and the wonderful Korean sketchers on 22 Dec 2009 when we witnessed the celebration of first day of winter (冬至). We saw very big crowd and fortune wishes tied to a tree like structure. This 1200-year-old Bongeunsa Temple (奉恩寺) was built in the year 794 and was reconstructed in 1498.
