About
As 1000 years of Buddhist history in Korea, Buddhism is an essence of Korean culture to understand its people. Buddhist arts and paintings are the key to understand Korean Buddhism. Jogyesa and Central Buddhist Museum are two major places to visit for this tour. Jogyesa Buddhist Temple is the head of Jogye sect which is main sect of Korean Buddhism and located in heart of Seoul. Jogyesa Temple has beautiful paintings and murals on the wall. They present the life of Buddha and symbols of Buddhism.This tour focus on painting in the main hall and murals outside of the main building. All murals and paintings are painted by hand. Especially murals were drawing top of the old murals. It is living cultural heritage. And interior of the main hall, behind the main Buddha Statues, there are beautiful paintings which represent Buddha's World. Sophisticated paintings are telling lots of things about Buddhism, doctrine and philosophy. I invite you to Buddha's World of Arts.
