Inwang Yoksa of Solluram


(Kumgang Yoksa)


The final two figures in the entrance foyer represent Inwang Yoksa or Kumgang Yoksa, guardian figures often found flanking the doors of temple buildings. While the great physical strength with which they are attributed is obvious from the musculature of the carvings, these figures are also said to be possessors of great wisdom. As depicted here, one has an open mouth and the other a closed one; both are over 2 meters high.
