Temple And Courtyard

The third post in this series….this time the sweeping beauty of a Buddhist temple.

Factoid: I had cause to visit this place a year ago. You can light an incense stick from a candle and¬† make a prayer offering at the altar near the entrance. I burnt my finger in the process. Let out an undisguised and pithy expletive in the close¬†presence of a monk. Hastily apologised. She smiled and said “That shows good self-awareness”. You have to love those who see the positive in anything….
