One of the earliest #writtenrecord of journeys taken by a #Korean which have survived is to #India via China. This one is a reference of a #Buddhist monk in Silla Dynasty. This was also a time of Buddhist culture flowering in this dominant Korean kingdom, visible as much from the stunning Silla jewellery in their museums today, as from an 800 yr tryst of land ownership by #women there. The latter not something you find easily pan India ever except for small pockets of time if at all.
