34 – Anamsan 안 암산

34 - Gaeunsan : Anamsan

Anamsan 안 암산
Where Monks and Scholars Cohabit
Subway: Anam (Line 6)
Distance hiked: 1.18 km
Time: 35:20

Anamsan, or Gaeunsan, is now Korea University, another vibrant spot for academics. But it is also some to Gaeunsa, a Buddhist temple. There isn’t much to hike in here, but the back of the temple provided a very serene place. I spot these shoes of a young worshipper outside the temple and I am in awe at these ancient places of worship coexisting with the modern research facilities.

And hey, nice shoes.
