Photographer's Note

I looked at other pictures from China on TE and I noticed that there are no photos from the interiors of the temples. As you know, I enter all the temples I see - churches, vats, pagodas, mosques, synagogues,.. so of course I visited some beautiful temples in China. They can be Buddhist, Confucius temples, taoist, Tibetan Buddhist (Lamaseries), and rarely catholic churches. In Tibetan temples usually the photos are strictly forbidden. What I find interesting that you do not take off the shoes - in Myanmar you must be bare feet on the whole area.

Here is the scene from Liurong Si - the Six Banyan Trees Temple in Guangzhou. Having a long history of about 1,400 years, this temple is one of the four best Buddhist temples in Guangzhou. Daxiong Baodian Hall is the main hall of the temple. The three biggest copper Buddhist statues placed there are among the biggest and most ancient Buddhist statues in Guangdong. The middle one is Sakyamuni, to the left, the Amitabha and to the right, the Apothecary Buddha. They stand for present, past and future.

Other interesting features - They use such red stools for kneeling . they seem comfortable but I haven't tried. You can see the bottles of water and fruits on the altar. They bring them for Buddha. I suppose that these statues do not eat it, but I have no idea what happen to this food.
