Chinese Temples










Seems I've been doing a few temples recently. Well Wanna wanted to visit the local Chinese temple and offer up some sugar water?.. Well sugar water is readily available on the roadside so off we went. Armed with the water and visited a temple in north Pattaya. It was very hot and few people about. Still it made for an interesting visit. Plenty of incense and smoke along with a various statues. A few people were buying birds in cages to then release them.. Seems it is good for the spirit. A friend tells me that if you release an animal or bird to freedom it should bring you good luck. Same with putting fish free in the river or pond. :) Nice idea. The statues were very intricate. Although to be honest I think a few are quite grotesque but then it's a matter of personnel taste. What works for me might not work for others.
