The Temple of Haeinsa (UNESCO World Heritage Site), on Mount Gaya, is home to the Tripitaka Koreana , the most complete collection of Buddhist texts, engraved on 80,000 woodblocks between 1237 and 1248. The buildings of Janggyeong Panjeon, which date from the 15th century, were constructed to house the woodblocks, which are also revered as exceptional works of art. As the oldest depository of the Tripitaka , they reveal an astonishing mastery of the invention and implementation of the conservation techniques used to preserve these woodblocks. The Haeinsa Tripitaka woodblocks were carved in an appeal to the authority of the Buddha in the defense of Korea against the Mongol invasions, which obviously were too successful but at least help secure Unesco status 800 years later. #travel #throwback #globetrotter #nomad #globetrotter #world🌍 #fly✈️ #southkorea🇰🇷 #unesco #worldheritage #daegu

Hwaseong (Brilliant Castle/ Fortress) is the wall surrounding the centre of Suwon, the provincial capital of Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. This Korean fortress was built from 1794 to 1796 by King Jeongjo of the Joseon Dynasty to house and honour the remains of his father Prince Sado, who had been executed by being locked alive inside a rice chest by his own father King Yeongjo after failing to obey the command to commit suicide. #travel #sightseeing #holiday #throwback #instapassport #travelog #travelgram #vacation #travelphoto #globetrotter #nomad #globetrotter #world🌍 #followme #instagood #fun #diversity#nature #history #fly✈️ #southkorea🇰🇷 #unesco #worldheritage

Namhansanseong : UNESCO World Heritage Site남한산성/南漢山城 Situated 25 km southeast from the center of the capital city of Seoul, the mountain fortress city of Namhansanseong sits approximately 480m above sea level aligning itself with the ridges of the mountain to maximize its defensive capacity. The fortress encompassing 12 km in length protects a vast area utilized as an emergency capital city of the Joseon Dynasty of Korea (1392~1910). With the basis of fortress architecture of East Asia, the fortress embodies the broad exchange between the four countries: Joseon of Korea, Azuchi-Momoyama Period of Japan, Ming and Qing China, especially in the 16th~18th centuries through the continuous wars. Namhansanseong portrays how the various theories of defense mechanisms in Korea were put to form by combining the everyday living environment with defense objectives, embodies the evidence of how Buddhism played an influential role in protecting the State and the fortress became a symbol of sovereignty in Korea. It stands on the Namhansan ("South Han Mountain"), containing fortifications that date back to the 17th century, and a number of temples. #travel #sightseeing #holiday #throwback #instapassport #travelog #travelgram #vacation #travelphoto #globetrotter #nomad #globetrotter #world🌍 #followme #instagood #fun #diversity#nature #history #fly✈️ #southkorea🇰🇷 #unesco #worldheritage

Jongmyo Shrine was a primary place of worship for kings throughout Joseon Dynasty. The memorial service, called Jongmyo Jaerye, is said to be the oldest complete ceremony in the world, and was carried out in obedience to the king’s order. The ceremony was designated as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site in December 9, 1995, for its well-preserved ancient customs, such as memorial services and traditional music, which is National Intangible Cultural Asset No.56. #korea #unescoworldheritage #travel #sightseeing #holiday #throwback #instapassport #travelog #travelgram #vacation #travelphoto #globetrotter #nomad #globetrotter #world🌍 #followme #instagood #fun #diversity#nature #history #fly✈️ #korea
