Seok Bul Sa Temple in Iksan City

in steempress •  2 months ago 

The king who built the capital of Baekje dynasty was a last second king in Baekje dynasty. In his time, the kingdom was suppressed by Shilla kingdom. So he was forced to move the capital in the inner area of the kingdom for the safety reasons.

In this place, king and queen had a baby who became a king. So king and queen was pleased and thanked for Buddha, and they built the temple to express their appreciation. At that time it was said that the stone buddha was carved together.

But in their son’s reign, the kingdom was conquered by Shilla and Tang dynasty.

The temple had been survived despite of the collapse of the kingdom according to the legend.

But sadly enough, the temple was fired and destroyed in the period of Japanese Invasion 1592-1599 AD

The stone Buddha was disappeared at that time. And in the early times of 20 century under the imperial rule of Japan, one old woman was told to find out the stone statue in her dream someday. Finally she found out the stone buddha, but the head of the statue was destroyed when she found out.

I’d like to see that stone buddha statue. Finally I arrived at the temple which was located by the road.

As soon as entering into the temple, the bell pavilion was waiting for me. Impressive thing was the dragon-looking like wood.

As I explained several times before, the dragon had special meaning in Korean Buddhism.

One thing interesting was a lion sculpture by the pavilion. At first time, I thought it a tiger, but as looking carefully I could notice that this sculpture had its mane.

It seemed to be made in recent times. The mason who carved this sculpture was not a man of talent in my view.

Before entering the apartmanium Croaticum in the distant lands of just outside of Split i ran into the Mystical Lamp of Wonders. The light shone strongly through its hardened plastic like the sunlight hitting a newly cut diamond. I was dazzled and amazed.

I ventured forward through the gateway that was bathed in the luminescence of the lamp. Through the gateway and the curtain of vow i ventured.
The stripes have a special meaning in Croatian culture.

Once i entered, one thing interesting was a canine painting i noticed just by the ash tray. At first, I thought it a dog, i was wrong, at closer inspection i noticed its pointy ears and the arrow pointing from the name "CAT".

It seemed to be made in recent times. The painter who created this masterpiece was not a man of talent in my view, nay, he was talent incarnate!

Can i have my 60$ now?

WELL
If you invest 4-500,000 dollars in buying steem and pay1500dollars a month for the trip to collect the data for your study.
and curate for the accounts who also invested in steemit and suffered serious loss, in my guess you can get more than 60 dollars.

i am disgusting for your constant complaining, if you post nice contents then I can vote for you as other accounts.
Don't waste your time for complaining, do better job.
anyway, I mute you. bye bye.

Quite funny, is it not, how those like you always have excuses to make and accolades to tie to their name.

I do not care how much you invested, what percentage of your portfolio your Steem investment is, who you circle jerk with and how entitled to rewards you all think you are.

The fact remains and it will always remain that you got 60$ (which is massive in these times) for 3 photos and a elementary school text. The fact remains that you post the same thing every day. That you do not engage with anyone or answer comments. That you take trending spots away from others.
The undeniable fact is that your posts are simply collection baskets for those who you vote to vote you back.

Change your behavior and if you post nice contents i can vote for you like i vote other accounts.
Otherwise ill continue mocking what you do and flagging you and ill try and get as many people to do the same.
I dont care if you mute me, the comments on your posts still remain. And i do not care if you flag me because all that does is attract more attention to your circle jerk.

Ok i know i am not good in my english
But bring it on
I will follow you to the end of the world

Then we shall meet there. Ill bring the beer, you bring the sandwiches.

.

Ok, bring it on, i swear i will downvote you to the end of the world.

Since you edited the comment i just wanted it to show for anyone that didnt see the original.

Amazing... truly Amazing!! I honestly don’t know how you do it!
I was thinking it was a lynx of some sort but the word “cat” was a dead give away.

Yes, that was a giveaway for me as well.

Well played sir.

It's hilarious how long this person's mediocre work has been propped up by the self votes, alts, and circle jerks.

This on trending makes Steem look like a joke.

I wonder if the dragon was carved from a log or if it was a branch that had a shape close to that.
