A few days ago, I visited Jogyesa Temple located in the middle of Seoul. Jogyesa does not give off the solemn and traditional air of the other temples located deep in the mountains. But because it is located within the heart of the city, the public transportation is so convenient, and well combined with the sceneries of the old city Seoul. Maybe another interesting place in town where nature is present is a temple.
I sketched some colorful sceneries here and there delightfully around crowded precints of the temple.

Fabulous sketches as always.

I went to this temple several times whilst I was in Seoul but never captured its spirit like you have.

Lee Yong Hwan :

What a surprise! It's really good to hear your visit Seoul several times. I'm very pleased that I had a meaningful sketch time at the temple.
