Buddha #1

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 10 March 2019 in Lifestyle & Culture.

Photographing Buddha statue is not allowed in most of Buddhist temples. This temple, 轉法輪寺 tempourinji temple allows. Why ? Maybe they want photographers to spread Buddhist teachings.
The height of this Buddha statue is 7.5 m, built in 1758.

With these candlesticks, we don't fully appreciate the vastness of this statue.

D'un pays bouddhiste à l'autre, les bouddhas ne se ressemblent pas, ils sont très différents.
Celui-ci est particulièrement beau et imposant !
