    Video: Hongbeopsa Temple – 홍법사 (Geumjeong-gu, Busan)

    Hello Again Everyone!! Hongbeopsa Temple is located in the northern part of Busan in Geumjeong-gu. The name of the temple, Hongbeopsa Temple, means “Spreading the Word of Buddhism Temple,” in English. The modern temple was first built in 2003 through the large donation of Domyeonghwa-bosal (a female lay devotee). The temple has a massive golden statue of Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise) on top of the main hall. And inside this statue of Amita-bul resides a sari (crystallized) remain of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). In addition to the main hall and the sari, the temple grounds are well-kept with ponds, trees, and a Dokseong/Sanshin-gak shaman shrine hall. Enjoy…
