What a Shame

Naksan Temple
Originally uploaded by Oblivia.

Its not a film still, its a real temple on fire - Naksan Buddhist Temple in Korea. The Chosun Ilboreports, "Most of the wooden structures of the historic Naksan Temple including its Hall of the Great Veneration went up in flames Tuesday when a massive forest fire that broke out in Yangyang, Gangwon Province spread to the seaside. But three national treasures, including a seated lacquered statue of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara that is Asia’s oldest, were spirited to safety in the temple’s basement. No one was hurt." Awesome photo.
