70 monks of the Chogye Temple are marching to the Chogye Temple located in Chongro, downtown of Seoul after attending an event designed to turn around the ailing Mt. Bukhan National Park. The event was held in front of the Seoul Station. They arrived in the Chogye Temple seven hours after departing the Seoul Station. In protest to the construction of a highway which will run through Mt. Bukhan, they took 3 steps, then made a bow all through the way to the temple.
