Architecture Pictures (featuring South Korea)

So I mentioned focusing on (South) Korean temples here but really there's so many that I haven't even scratched the surface, so instead here is a post of general cool, pretty architecture (featuring Korean temples, among other things). Most of these images are from Wikimedia commons. In fact, I think the only ones that aren't are two from the official site of the Hwa Gye Sa temple. Anyway, the pictures are below the fold, so click to see.

I also pass on this story, which I found on a photo-type blog:

After 30 minutes of sitting meditation, followed by 10 minutes of walking meditation, multiplied by 3, a monk arrived to provide the weekly Dharma talk. He spoke about a few things yet 2 major insights resonated. He asked if anyone had seen a drunken elephant. After looking around the room, one participant said, “Yes, it’s on You Tube!” The buddhist laughed and said, “Yes!”
