Shuang Lin Monastery - Designs


My last post on this temple. The designs on the roof are beautiful with dragon and phoenix pictures.

Everywhere in the temple looked so clean and fresh.

The designs on the door looked beautiful too.


The lanterns on the top are also well made and the roof very colourful too.

Rows and Rows of lanterns hanging up.

This is a kind of buddhist fish, a dragon head with a fish body. I forgot what is the meaning of this, read somewhere. I think the dragon head is meant as power while the fish body represent the fish living in a state of fearlessness without a fear of drowning in the vast ocean and swimming freely in the sea.
