Jogyesa Temple, Gyeong-jidong, Jongno-gu
After visiting Gyeongbukgung, we walked (yes walked!) to Jogyesa Temple, a Buddhist temple located in Jongno.
Did nothing much except offered some prayers - wasn't sure if I was doing it the right way, but oh well. All I can say the main building was packed with a lot of older women praying, reading and chanting.
Ssamziegil, Gwanhu-dong, Jongno-gu
Walked to Ssamziegil (quite a short walk, just had to cross the street towards the opposite side of Jogyesa and walked into an alley).
The whole Ssamziegil structure is actually a rectangular-shaped spiral. Not sure if you can see from the photo above but it's quite awesome. There's a lot of shops here - from accessories, clothes, cafes, arts and crafts, etc..
Headed to the basement level (can't remember whether it was B1 or B2) for dinner at this place called Korean Fusion Restaurant.
After dinner, we walked out on the streets and went into a shop to buy souvenirs. Bought a lot from this uncle's shop who said he had been to Cameron Highlands somewhere in the 90s. Since we bought a lot from him, he gave us a small coin purse each! :D
Then we set off to Cheonggyecheon, which will be touched on my next post! Heehee.
