hkskyline's 2009 KOREA Photos #6 - Gyeongju Blossoms

During my regular threads housekeeping, I realized I never posted my Gyeongju photos here despite referring to them in my sneak preview thread back in 2009. While it's a small city quite a distance from Seoul, it is a beautiful weekend getaway during cherry blossom season.





This is a very interesting building with a pagadoa-shaped hole right in the middle.



The cherry blossoms were spectacular.





















The trees snaked around the lake, providing plenty of strolling space to enjoy spring's arrival.











A traditional lunch followed. First to arrive was a salad with jelly made of pine cones.





Bulguksa Temple's origins date from the 6th century, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The grounds are quite large, with plenty to see and explore amidst the many buildings.











The highlight is this structure - the postcard picture.

















I prefer the old stuff to be that way. Some element of wear and tear makes them look real.













I'm not sure what these little statues mean, although they are strikingly similar to inukshuks.
