Luohan / Arhat at Temple of 10,000 Buddhas

This is a continuation of yesterday’s series on the Temple of Ten Thousand Buddhas.

My yesterday’s picture shows dozens of Luohans or Arhats on either side of some steep steps that one has to climb to the temple.CIMG7275

Every Luohan has a particular face / posture.

Like my brother, he was never tired of photographing them in details.

Here is one of those . . . . . . just to wet your appetite.


Temple of Ten Thousand Buddhas 1

Many visitors to Hong Kong find this temple awesome.

The temple houses over 10,000 Buddha statues, all dissimilar in appearance.

However, as photography in the temple is not allowed, the ten thousand Buddhas are rarely shown on pictures.CIMG7268

To reach the temple, one has to walk 430 steps. Along the way, you see some 500 Luohans or Arhats.

Here is a picture of the Luohans or Arhats, all plated in gold colors, with different expressions.

The picture was taken by my brother based in the States and who is right now  in Hong Kong.
