During the second century, the Korean
peninsula was governed by three kingdoms: Goguryeo, Baekje, and Shilla. Buddhism was introduced in korea in A.D 372, during the reign of King Sosurim of the Goguryeo Dynasty.
It soon found its way into the Baekje
Kingdom and Shilla Kingdom. Bulguksa
(Buddhist temple) and Seokguram, which have
been appointed as world cultural assets, were
built during the Shilla Dynasty. Buddhism has had
a strong effect on the development of Korean
culture since the time of its introduction. Korea has many
Buddhism-related cultural assets, including
buildings, sculptures, drawings, and craftworks. This gallery contains images of the peregrination through the Buddhist Temples and other tourist Attractions in and around Pohang, the steel city of South Korea.
