Sublime Beautiful Sunday | Visit to Chinese Temple

in sublimesunday •  9 months ago 

It's Sunday... And time for another Beautiful Sunday and Sublime Sunday post. So, I'm trying something new this week. Something out of the box, something different, something wild, something odd and who knows where this Sunday will lead us.

Here I have photos of my previous Sunday walkabout when my parents and brother was in town. After lunch, we decided to take a tour and visit the famous Chinese temple around the area. I've been told several times that in this part of Chinatown, there are plenty of temples. But never got around to visiting them. Since my parents were Buddhist believers, it seemed right to bring them here.

Thankfully, we have a local advising us where to go and also the help of Mr Google, it didn't take us long to reach to this temple. From the outside, it didn't seemed like a so-called-famous-must-see temple. Boy! When we walked in, it was a totally different experience.

Since it wasn't polite to take photos inside the temple for spiritual reasons, I decided to stick only to the exterior of the temple. I do say that the it's amazing magnificent. It may look small from the outside, but the inside of the temple is huge and deep. There were many people coming to pray while some were tourist like me.

Just look at the carvings and pictures on the wall. It's absolutely amazing. I would want to visit here again during the TET holidays. I'm sure there would be much activities planned in view of the arrival of TET.

Went to the temples today too and some parts don't allow photos.
Glad Google works there.

Yes indeed..
There was a security guard sitting outside and he did give me a stare.
But then since he knew I was a foreigner, I guess he just gave me a pass

Thanks for sharing your visit to the temple Ireen.

Many Buddhists have come to live on PEI and they are building a huge monastery in Brudnell.

The full campus would include residences, classrooms, recreational facilities, as well as places of worship. It is expected to become a destination for religious tourism.
