We went back down the funicular to the city and walked around. Colourful streets, highrises, temples and traffic. A Unique mixture. The colonial mixed in with more traditional buildings and Hindu temples. McDonald’s looked like a temple to fast food!!
The last part of the journey up the mountain was on a funicular. At the top was the 36.57-metre-tall (120 ft) bronze statue of Guanyin (Kuan Yin), the Goddess of Mercy.
In these days of wars and threats we sure need some Mercy!!
We started moving up the mountain through the immense temple complex towards the giant sculpture at the top.
The largest Buddhist temple in the world!
It was a huge complex up into the mountains.
We ate a simple meal of fish stew in a local cafe and then took a funicular ride up the mountain to get the view from the heights
Peace is what we don’t have enough of!!
Art and peace in a world of war and human stupidity!!
Everywhere you looked in this temple there was something amazing.
The most amazing colourful temple!!
So much to see in this incredible temple.
