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.
The Thai temple in Penang with the 4th largest reclining buddha in the world…
One of the buddha statues with golden paper pasted on it.
One of the many golden statues with golden paper pasted onto by devotees. Behind the golden statue lies the reclining buddha.
The flooring: beautifully coloured lotus leafs with a green background. That’s what I like about this temple.
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. = )
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…
A shot of Lord Buddha and his follower… Now you can gauge the size of Lord Buddha.. = )
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”!)
