The flowering plant made in the image of the Buddha
Aug 2020
Chinese people admire the lotus because it is created in the image of the Buddha. The lotus grows in slime and filth yet it produces the most beautiful flower, it show the possibilities of life on earth for believers . The journey from corruption to perfection is an analogy of the journey from life on Earth to Enlightenment. The Lotus acts as an inspiration for Buddhists on their life-long quest to achieve Nirvana

Beautiful plant is edible
Aug 2020
The lotus is a prime symbol in Buddhist iconography, because it is a perfect flower that emeges from slime; that is, a perfect being can emerge from a corrupt earth. The lotus flowers are very beatiful, Most parts of the lotus, including the roots, are edible. The lotus is sacred to Buddhists and Hindus.

Perfection emerges from slime
Feb 2020
The lotus is celebrated in Chinese culture because this beautiful flower emerges from slime. The lotus flowers in summer, with the advent of spring the flowers are beginnng to emerge. By the way, most parts of the plant are edible; the lotus root is a popular dish in Chinese cuisine.

This place was more like a lake than a pond with 20 or more spectacular and colourful temples to different deities around it we enjoyed it and wished we had more time to explore more than just a few of the temples

So very different
Dec 2018 • Couples
The many temples and shrines are a photographers gift. You can enter a pagoda to climbe up foe a Moore panoramic view, but make sure you enter via the Dragon and not the Tiger as that would be bad luck. You can exit via either. The walls inside depict heaven on one side and he'll on the other, all in relief and beautiful colours. There is a lot to see around this pond and you can buy fresh drinks and ices to cool down in the heat
