Seoul Korea

Seoul holds a unique combination of past and present. City center is full of palaces that still withstand the might of modern age colossal skyscrapers.

The view from DEOKSUGUNG PALACE, Seoul. In the background there are two 30 stored skyscrapers and another 21st century looking building. In the middle four traditional little palace buildings with black tiles on the roofs. In the foreground an ancient ritual metal black round pot standing on sand-colored stoned ground

Closer to New Year a Buddhist temple Jogyesa 조계사 is decorated, condescending to mortals the heavenly joy of tranquility and consciousness. The blank feeling of a gap between religion and our earthy life causes shyness and almost a guilt as you are unable to truly embrace spiritual essence of upcoming holidays.
