This year May 6 is  Buddha's Birthday. The Buddhists are gathered on the temples to celebrate the annual high day. And lots of colorful Lotus Lanterns are beautifully embroidered on the precincts and the street around the temple. During the last holidays, I sketched several colorful sceneries at my favorite temples nearby the Mt. Bukhansan National Park.

Thank you, Kumi and Murray.
The small temples and colorful Lotus Lanterns are harmonized well with their surroundings.
