One of Korea's most treasured cultural artifacts is now on display to the general public for the first time.
This is the Tripitaka Koreana, an 800-year-old collection of Buddhist scriptures famously carved on 80-thousand wooden blocks.
It's kept at Haeinsa Temple in Gyeongsangnam-do Province, where it's been for six centuries.
The tours will admit up to 20 people at a time.
Tours are given twice a day on Saturdays and Sundays, starting this weekend, and they have to be reserved online.
