Buddhist monks at a local temple in Korea, 1904.
Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Collection
Buddhist monks in uniquely Korean habits stand in front of a local village temple. The elaborate carved-wood roof line and decorative dragons look lovely, even in black and white.
Buddhism was still the majority religion in Korea at this time. Today, Koreans with religious beliefs are roughly evenly split between Buddhists and Christians.
