Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top ( of Temple Roof, Inner Mongolia)

Sometimes we never know what are on top of roofs.

We discovered these on top of a temple roof in Huhot, Inner Mongolia.CIMG1965

Up to now, we still don’t quite know what they are.

A more detailed view is also given.CIMG1964

The cylindrical golden thing on top of the roof is definitely not a water tank.

It is also surprising to see there is a skull like thing on top as well.

We can only surmise that they are related to religion / folklores in Inner Mongolia.

Zooming out, it can be seen how these objects are related to the overall roof and temple structure.DSCF2137

There is symmetry on both sides of the main structure. These objects are repeated on the other side.
