Penang 2009 (06 Aug 09 to 09 Aug 09) Part 5

Malaysia

These series of photos were taken at Wat Chaiyamangalaram Thai Buddhist Temple aka The Temple of the Lifting Buddha (the 4th largest sleeping buddha statue in the world) AND Dharmikarama Burmese Temple dates back to 1803, and was built by Nyonya Betong, a Burmese.

Reclining Buddha (4th largest in the world)

Praying
The flooring: beautifully coloured lotus leafs with a green background. That’s what I like about this temple.

Burmese Temple: A large statue of Lord Buddha... really HUGE
This was taken in Sime Hall where the TALL Lord Buddha’s statue was. Glad I had an ultra wide angle lens. Even though there are distortions but I am not really bothered. What I wanted was to capture the details inside. = )

The buddha's fingers
A shot of Lord Buddha’s fingers and the beautiful ceiling above. If I had a F1.2 lens… probably the bokeh would look even more fantastic. HAHA…

Lord Buddha and his follower
A shot of Lord Buddha and his follower… Now you can gauge the size of Lord Buddha.. = )

Another faithful follower
This was a shot of another faithful follower offering his prayers to Lord Buddha.

I missed out a final photo. Its the coolest group photo taken on the 1st day if I am not wrong. The accidental attitude shot (accidental coz we found this background by chance, attitude because of our “style”!)
Attitude shot
