Photographer's Note

This is the ceiling of the Thean Hou Temple situated in the hills of Kuala Lumpur. Some time ago I posted a photo of this ceiling in more close up.

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 mentioned previously, you can't help but feel peace and well-being in this place.
