Did not get started until almost noon trying to decide where to go. Finally came up with this cave temple constructed in 751. Certified by UNESCO in 1995 as one of the world's best Buddhist shrines and representing the Unified Sinra Dynasty's art and science. UNESCO should have left it at that, after all it has stood here for almost 1500 years! Unfortunately, in attempting to "protect" this treasure they have completely ruined the purpose for which it was intended. It definitely is NOT worth a visit and especially not for the price of admission! See the photos.

Returned and bought bus tickets for Andong leaving at 8:30am tomorrow.

Went to MickyDs for dinner (my dinner).
