Religion and culture intertwined

Inside Jogye-sa temple
Korean Rice Chest
Continuing on from my earlier posting on Korean Rice chests I came across this photo I had taken in  Jogye-sa Buddhist Temple near Insadong in Seoul. Inside the temple was a traditional Korean rice chest but with glass sides where people could place offereings of bags of rice for the monks.
Prayer accessories laid out carefully on the floor of the temple
In a sacred place such as a temple you can see the intertwining of religion and culture as they utilize an ancient everyday piece of furniture in a modern day religious setting.
