Having looked at mosques and Hindu temples it was time to look at a Buddhist Temple. We visited the Buddha Tooth relic temple.
I was a bit bemused. Did they really have bits of the Buddha scattered all over the globe? Were there temples to the Buddha’s left big toe? Or the mighty lingam temple? Were they all going to be reassembled one day?
Or was it like the Christian relics? They reckon that in medieval times there were enough pieces of the cross to assemble a thousand crosses.
I decided to suspend my cynicism and focus on aesthetics. It was another stunning example of art and architecture.
