A view of the path to the Halls and Pavilions of Bongeunsa, a 1200 year old temple located in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea after passing through Jinyeo-mun – “The Gate of Suchness”.

The word refers to the ultimate truth, which is beyond words with no relative distinctions. The temple brochure says that "from this gate, your trip to the ultimate truth begins.

The flowers and shrubs in the garden are festooned with prayer messages.
