Mitawon

Mitawon (미타원, 'Amitabha temple') is a Buddhist temple and charnel house. Founded in 2002, it stands on the slopes of Daeja
(대자, 'great mercy') mountain in Daeja-dong, Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.

I took this photo at the temple, was too crowded with visitors on Buddha’s birthday. On this day, a memorial service for the dead was observed on the front yard of a building that contains a statue of Buddha early in the morning. After a memorial service, all the visitors took free meals and tea provided by the temple.

The paper lanterns cover the entire temple throughout the month, the white paper lanterns are to pray for the Gukrakwangsaeng (극락왕생, 'an easy passage into eternity') of the deceased, and the colored paper lanterns are to pray for the wealth and honor of the living.
