The only Chinese Temple in Bandar Seri Begawan is officially known as the "Hall of Flying Clouds'.
Although the original Chinese temple survived the bombings of the Second World War it was demolished to make way for the expanding port. In 1960 the Bruneian government provided $45,000 towards the building of this small but very ornate and very red temple.

We don't see many shots from Brunei, so this is good to see. You have managed the contrasts well, the great pattern in the sky and yet managed to keep good light and detail on the temple.

Red and blue! A well captured view with this roof bent into the composition, that is perfectly balanced and harmonic. Interesting sky and a very interesting building!

This is a very nice close up showing many interesting details and colors. It is a well composed shot and well chosen part of the temple to focus on. How lucky you were to have such a gorgeous sky for the background.

Great composition, I like the strong contrast between sky and building. Great architecture.

Good composition highlighting the shape of the typical Chinese roof & also playing with the fine colour contrast between the red & blue of the sky! Well done!

Wonderful composition with the graceful roof edge pointing to the heavens. Thanks for introducing me to a country which, I am embarrassed to admit, I had never heard of. Lovely. Judy
