Day 1: I have arrived here in south korea at 5pm and i just visited the one and only Haeinsa. it is the temple of Reflection on a Smooth Sea. it is one of the most important Buddhist temples in South Korea. The temple was first built in 802 and rebuilt in the 19th century after Haiensa was burned down in a fire in 1817. The temple’s greatest treasure however, a complete copy of the Buddhist scriptures (he Tripitaka Koreana) written on 81,258 woodblocks, survived the fire. now that i have experienced this wonderful place i will go to bed to catch my plane to Russia that leaves at 3am.
Day 2: now that i have arrived here in russia at 9 am i am going to sleep for a couple hours from jet lag. now that i have woke up i am going to go to the Grand Choral Synagogue at 3pm. My train has arrived at this beautiful synagogue and i see gates in the front with a very tall dome at the top. Vasily Stasov designed the Grand Choral Synagogue in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was completed in 1893 as a central worship space for the area’s growing Jewish community.
