About Me

Me in Namhae, Gyeongsangnam-do

Hey Everyone!!

It’s Dale again from “Dale’s Korean Temple Adventure.” I’m back blogging. It took me all of 4 months from when I discontinued my former website to realize just how much I missed writing about Korean Buddhist temples. So here I am, again, bringing back both a hybrid of blog and vlog postings.

On a more personal note, I’ve been living in Korea, on and off, since 2003. The reason that I decided to write about Korean Buddhism was for two reasons. First, there isn’t all that much information in English about Korean Buddhism. And second, since I’ve always lived in the southern portion of the Korean peninsula, I realized that this area wasn’t all that well covered with most of the attention being focused on Seoul. With all that in mind, and over the past ten years, I decided to bring these two ideas together and write about Korean Buddhism with a particular focus down south near Busan and Gyeongsangnam-do.

Again, I hope you’ll follow me as I bring you some more great content on Korean Buddhism: its art, history, religion and architecture. Enjoy!
