Tripitaka Koreana

 
Monks look around printing woodblocks of Tripitaka Koreana (also called Palman Daejanggyeong) preserved in Haein Temple in Hapcheon, South Gyeongsang, on Thursday. The temple will allow the general public to appreciate the cultural asset, National Treasure 32, in person on Saturdays and Sundays starting from June 19. The Buddhist scriptures were carved on over 80,000 blocks of wood in the 13th century. The Tripitaka Koreana was registered in 2007 on Unesco's world heritage list. [YONHAP]
