Korean Road Trip: Gyeongju (Part II)

Bulguksa Temple

After checking out the giant Buddha, we made our way to the Bulguksa temple, which is also on the Unesco World Cultural Heritage List. It was quite beautiful, but the grounds were the interesting part for us. The temple is set in a really pretty area, amongst a lot of streams and gardens. There was also a tunnel that was pretty interesting–it was filled with carvings of monster-like warriors that are meant to protect the temple from evil spirits. I honestly don’t know much about the temple, so there’s not much more to say, but we did take some awesome photos that day, so I won’t bore you with any more words! Overall, Gyeongju was a pretty interesting place, and a great stopover on our way to Ulsan!
