Photographer's Note

This is the ceiling of the Thean Hou Temple situated in the hills of Kuala Lumpur. It is the same temple where the people are seen praying in my previous shot. The temple was built between 1981 and 1987 and was opened in 1989. It is dedicated to the the Heavenly Mother Goddess Tian Hou. However statues of two other goddesses also reside here, namely Guan Yin(Goddess of Mercy) and Shui Wei Sheng Niang (Goddess of the Waterfront). The temple incorporates elements of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. As I said before, you can't help but feel peace and well-being in this place.

I thought this was an appropriate photo to mark the commencement of Chinese New Year, which begins today. To you all, Happy Year of the Dragon.
