On a long Sunday bike ride southwest of Chungju, in search of a nearby art village, I happened upon a Buddist temple with many beautiful statues of the Awakened One. Some were only an inch tall, but this golden statue stood about 30 feet tall.
This colorful building is the Buddhist temple on site. Although you can't see it in this pic, the entire ceiling was also richly painted in bright hues.
