Even though the hall ‘Dae Wung Jeon’ was but a small building, there were some characteristic things worth to look around.

At first, I’d like to show a patterns on the side wall of the roof to ‘my fellow steemians’.
The pattern must be a lotus flower. The reason I choose it as the one of the most impressive was that it was first time for me to see the lotus flower on the side roof wall.
The patterns were the symbol of the Jogyeo Order in Korean Buddhism and other patterns normally.

The second was dragon sculptures under the eaves.
The face of dragons were so vivid as if there were living.

The third was paintings on the wall of the hall.
Those paintings represented the process how to reach the enlightenment along to the way of Buddhism.
The most important thing in Buddhism is how to control our mind.
Here the cow was a symbol of our mind.

@slowwalker, There are so many patterns and ornaments in Dae Wung Jeon hall. Side wall of lotus design impressive to anybody. It was especially inspiring one. Yep...First time I see from Korean temple's hall it like you. The dragons most of seen from Korean Buddhism. Wall paintings more meaningful and you well explained like below.

Yep that's true and believe 100%.

Those dragons were really quite cool!

Thank you for sharing those details, beautifully decorated roof and lotus sign. The head of dragon is carved out of wood and with those colors it gives the dragon 3 dimensional realistic appearance.

The path of enlightenment is my favorite, it tells us a story in paintings, everyone can see and understand it without knowing the language. The paintings still have intense colors and thankfully not paled off with time. Thank you for those beautiful pictures :)

Wow the patterns and their deep connotations, I mean from the lotus flower to the dragon head and the cow that signifies a rebuilding process/ Way of life to enlightenment of Buddhism, it's amazing that you provide explanation to the deep underlying meaning, and my goodness they're beautifully done work, great shot by you as well

@slowwalker, Through Artistic Sculptures and Paintings we can feel and imagine the essence of the culture and we can time travel with the thoughts. Stay blessed.
