The Best Place for the Scenery in Bu Seok Sa Temple, An Yang Ru Pavilion
The specialists told the best place for enjoying the scenery was An Yang Ru pavilion in front of Mu Ryang Su Jeon hall for Vairocana Buddha where was said the second oldest wooden building in Korea.
An Yang Ru pavilion was 2 story building. The first story was the gate to Mu Ryang Su Jeon and the second story was the place to see the scenery. The pillars of the second story looked like the frame of the scenery drawings.
The scenery from the pavilion was well known among many people, because specialists had assessed as such. But in my guess the building itself was so wonderful. The An Yang Ru was very well made building.
It was so harmonized and well balanced with its surroundings.
So I took several photos of the pavilion from various angles to see the beauty of the building.
I took photos of the scenery to be seen from the pavilion.
But unlike the specialists’ words, I could not agree with their assessment. The scenery from different place was much more beautiful than that from An Yang Ru in my view. I thought the creator of this temple intentionally controlled the view from the An Yang Ru.
In Buddhist perspective, perfection seemed not a virtue.
In my guess, they designed the pavilion to see the less beautiful scenery. In front of Buddha, people could’ve not be fallen into the scenery.
