500 Arhats of Changnyeongsa Temple Site: Reflection of Our Hearts Exhibit at Busan Museum

50 sculptures of arhats from the ruins of Changnyeongsa Temple in Yeongwol, Gangwon-do are on display at Busan Museum.

The ruins of Changnyeongsa Temple in Yeongwol, Gangwon-do Province, are where the sculptures of arhats, believed to be 500 years old, were first discovered in 2001. In Buddhism, an arhat, or nahan in Korean, is someone who has attained enlightenment and can enter nirvana.

The innovative space for this exhibition was designed and created in collaboration with contemporary artist Kim Seung-young.

Previously, the exhibition was successfully held at Chuncheon National Museum in Aug. 2018 and the National Museum of Korea in Apr. 2019, and was well received by a large number of visitors.
