Natural Beauty at Guinsa, South Korea
Postcard KR-104756 from South Korea shows a scenic drive led to Guinsa (救仁寺), Buddhism Temple of Salvation and Kindness, in the Sobaek Mountains near Danyang, South Korea. Originally built in 1945, Guinsa was burned down during the Korean War; and the reconstruction started in 1966. The campus, placed along a narrow valley surrounded on all sides by mountains, was chosen according to head monk Sangwol Wongak's (上月圓覺) interpretation of the Lotus Sutra (妙法蓮華經).
