Day 3 - NOT the trip to Bukhansan National Park. So originally, this planned day was to go on a hiking trail in the National Park of Bukhansan together with fellow #dutch traveler Gillian from #utrecht However things turned out different when we started to follow a few #korean hikers queued up for the bustrip. These people may look old, but they are damn professionally geared up when they’re up for a #hiking trail. So since we couldn’t read Korean we just followed these guys into a 🚌 figuring this would take us the National Park. We we’re standing in a fully packed bus where both of us we’re standing tall, most locals don’t have the height so they we’re standing under our armpits, since we didn’t want to bother them with our male odor. We tried to lift our arms as high as possible not to impose on their personal space, but after an hour we got tired of putting our arms up. Suddenly it occurred to us that we might not be in the correct bus to the National Park. We’ve been almost driving around for 2 hours until the bus stopped and everybody got off. Turns out we ended up in Bogwangsan, a place 2h northwest of Seoul. Since this wasn’t exactly what we planned for we tried to talk to a few locals walking in that area what to do, there was this lovely lady who guided us into this remote Buddhist temple. “You must be hungry from the long trip”, She said. “Let’s eat” A bit reluctantly we said yes, as we did not want to impose on her daily activities, we walked with her to the monastery’s dining room where we we’re served the local #korean vegetable dish: #Bibimbap. That was a good lunch, and as we approached her to pay for the meal, she said: “No, you don’t have to pay at a Buddhist temple” this was one of the kindest experiences I’ve come to encounter in Korea. Later we walked around the area and discovered locals are burying there ancestors here in some urns and families come to prey every once in a while. We hiked up an off the beaten path on a mountaintrail until we ended up at the top, to bad the view was all to foggy, but at least we got our exercise in the end. #wanderlust #travel #offthebeatenpath #buddhism #temples #photojournal #korea 🇰🇷

This 6th century Dravidian architecture is quite a marvel to look at. This location used to be a buzzing seaport where Romans traded. These stone-cut monuments older than most things on Earth, that contain memories and a stillness that can train anyone, stands proudly as a testament of time. Our country is filled with this surreal yet kind of sour feeling of haphazard urban constructions surrounded by ancient glory. Chaos and poverty studded with proof of an extremely rich past.

The famous “tomb raider” temple 🤸🏼‍♀️

सेममुखेम नागराज उत्तराखण्ड के उत्तरकाशी जिले में स्थित एक प्रसिद्ध नागतीर्थ है। श्रद्धालुओं में यह सेम नागराजा के नाम से प्रसिद्ध है।🙏😇
इसमें नागराज फन फैलाये हैं और भगवान कृष्ण नागराज के फन के ऊपर वंशी की धुन में लीन हैं। मन्दिर में प्रवेश के बाद नागराजा के दर्शन होते हैं। मन्दिर के गर्भगृह में नागराजा की स्वयं भू-शिला है। ये शिला द्वापर युग की बतायी जाती है। मन्दिर के दाँयी तरफ गंगू रमोला के परिवार की मूर्तियाँ स्थापित की गयी हैं। सेम नागराजा की पूजा करने से पहले गंगू रमोला की पूजा की जाती है।💕🙏👼

The ceiling and part of the upper wall inside one of the temples at Katas Raj. Most of the temples aren't very well preserved and unfortunately the artwork in the interior is in pretty bad shape all over. However, this has either been restored or it's still in pretty good shape. #pakistan #katasraj #temples #hindu #hindutemples
