Ten Disciples of Buddha of Sokkuram

 

The final ten figures on the lower portion of the rotunda wall depict the historical disciples of Sakyaumuni. All are shown as monks, with shaven heads, drawn faces, and simple garments. The ten disciples were Mognyon, Kajonyon, Subori, Upari, Ananda, Saribul, Kasop, Puruna, Anayul, and Rahura. While this much is known, however, the assignment of names to individual carvings is much more speculative. All of these figures are approximately 2 meters high.
