Seokguram, Gyeongju

#4 of 24 in Historic Sites in Gyeongju
World heritage site · Monument · Religious Site
Symbolizing a spiritual journey into Nirvana, Seokguram treasures forty figures representing Buddhist principles and teachings. Nestled in the hills and made of hundreds of granite stones, the 8th-century cave temple is the only intact structure surviving from the Silla era and a World Heritage Site. Pass a narrow corridor lined with bas-reliefs of guardian deities, which leads from a rectangular antechamber into the main rotunda. Once there, take a moment to appreciate the 3.3 m ( ft) tall statue of Buddha, seated on a pedestal and smiling generously.
