This water lily image was taken in front of the " Guanyin Hall of Minor Western Heaven " at " Beihai Park " in Beijing.
Western Heaven in Buddhism is the land of Extreme Happiness. Emperor Qian Long built the Guanyin Hall for mother to pray for her happiness and longevity . The reflection of this palatial hall in the style of Square pavilion
left such rich colors to the surface of water, the reddish water lilies seemed
taking us to another world.
