Rawang, Malaysia

Statue converted to B&W,three textures applied.

We stumbled across this Buddhist temple hidden in the bushland while on the way to somewhere else. Thought we checked it out. There were lots of Buddhist deities statues along the entrances.Most of them looked very aggressive and scary! Not sure what is the significance since we couldn’t find a single soul in that temple . I assumed they were to guard the temple. It was a very interesting huge place with a lot of beautiful paintings depicting the life of Buddha.

  • LOL,Lance! I find it rather confusing when I go to a Buddhist temple overseas,they have the most grotesque statues. Scary for kids! Thanks for the kind comment.
