Rich, is playing the calm that emanates from these images, there must be a great silence in this area and respect it represents.

Greetings from Malaga, A. Wheat

Greetings Antonio, The visitors to this temple, and there are hundreds at a time, talked in hushed tones and the building absorbs many of the sounds, so it does seem quiet and peaceful. This building houses 5 very impressive statues.

All these Buddha photos are impressive, Rich, but I particularly like the "calm" of this one. It inspires a holy awe.

Greetings, Marilyn

Greetings Marilyn, Thank you so much for your visit and wonderful comment. You are so right. To be able to see such huge statues with beautiful details is awe inspiring in the technique of making them. But the setting within the temple and the peace that surrounds them, a very nice experience. I am gld you could feel the atmosphere inside the temple with the Buddhas.
