No matter what made a fire caught, immovable fact is that ancestor's spirit from Naksansa, one of major Buddhist temples in Korea, has gone away already. The fire originated nearby, then propagated to Naksansa and its outskirts. Most of national treasures of buildings, big bell, and wooden architecture as well as forests turned into ashes. These were what I could hear and remember about 2005's fire breakout.

When I visited there several days ago, its appearance seemed to be better than before. Artificial objects like architectures restored appropriately. Nevertheless, bald mountains and coarse forest still made me frown. Natural resource can disappear within a second but can't recover even in a decade.
