What beautiful colors: red and green!..Very nice, Rich! Simona

Good Morning Simona, Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. This temple is so cool because it is so big and has unusual architecture. As with the other temples we visited the colors are very strong and vibrant.

Greetings Anna, Glad you like it. Very colorful and a very rich deep sound of the bell. All temples have a big bell and this one is especially ice in looks and sound.

Greetings Rich. I was at the United Nations one year where they celebrate Earth Day on the Vernal Equinox (March 21st) by ringing a bell that looks a great deal like this. It is the official U.N. Peace Bell. I'd link my Panoramio picture to it, but I don't want to crowd this comment. I came here solely to wish you a Happy Holiday Season.

My best wishes for the New Year.
