Leshan 9

Published 30/05/2013 by inspiringyourspirit

Hi Everyone,

Well, it’s day nine of our walk around the beautiful gardens that surround Leshan Temple in Sichuan Province China. We are now coming to the temple itself, as you will see from the images below, it is protected by some fearsome carvings which stand guard outside the temple entrance. The temple is high up the side of the hill and it is a very tiresome climb up all those steps.

At the bottom of the steps is a large Lotus Leaf Statue which is used for burning candles as a offering to The Buddha and to Passed family members and friends.
