From October 10 to 12 (Friday to Sunday), the 2014 Seoul Traditional Temple Week will be held at 58 traditional temples located throughout Seoul.
Hosted by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and supervised by the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, as well as other religious denominations that own traditional temples, Seoul Traditional Temple Week is composed of a variety of programs, including an “Open Temple Day ,” walks along traditional temple paths, temple stays, and tours of traditional temples (Buddhist painting and dancheong illustration experience, traditional culture experience, etc.).
Intended to serve as an occasion to celebrate Seoul’s traditional temples by making them more accessible to the citizens of Seoul and encourage the preservation of temple culture, the three-day event will be an invaluable opportunity for citizens to enjoy the many aspects of traditional temple culture.
