Treasures of Dalseong Park

Amidst the lush vegetation of Mokpo’s Dalseong Park, I climbed stone steps onto temple grounds.

To the left was housed a brass bell with a wooden mallet firmly in place. Above was a prayer room housing a statue of Buddha amongst what I’m guessing were officials and scholars. Above hung tags suspended from paper lanterns —prayers requesting the bearers desires such as a pregnancy or more money.

There were two other beautiful buildings within the peaceful complex but they were closed from the public on my visit.
