7 Stars Hall in Sil Sang Sa Temple
In every temple, there is a hall for serving mountain god who was believed as Korean traditional ancient religion.
I explained several times on the meaning of the mountain God in Buddhist temple in Korea. It seemed to be accepted by Buddhism in the process of accepting by Korean people. So it could be said as the result of the negotiation.
Here in Sil Sang Sa, there was an another example of the negotiation between Buddhism and local religion in ancient Korea.
It was seven stars. Here seven stars mean the Big Dipper.
There was only a seven star hall in Sil Sang Sa temple.
I’d like to look inside of the hall, but regrettably, the hall was closed.
It was too late to see inside, time passed over 6 o'clock pm.
Even though this 7 stars hall was small building, people seemed to use so splendid style in this hall. This sincerity told they thought this hall important.
