Sudeoksa is a head temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. It is located on the southern slopes of Deoksung-san in Deoksan-myeon, Yesan County, in the province of Chungcheongnam-do, South Korea.

It is one of the most wonderful temples that i've seen. Like many other temples, it is also located on the top of the hill with stairs that is used to climb up. But we see temples or some idols after climbing few steps.

I don't know much about buddhism so i don't know what these idols means are. We see them at the entrance or gate of the temples.

I was also surprised to see people posting some coins on the wall or is it a big stone? They said your wish will come true of the coin won't fall. They also offer some money to the idol.

Of all the buddhist temples that i've been to, this is my first time to see this kind of buddha. This is the only buddha that i knew when i was young.

It was fall when we went there so it makes the view more wonderful because of the leaves changing in colors.
