Since it is reputed to be the most colourful temple in Beijing, a visit to the Lama Temple was on. Inside each of the halls are various massive Buddha images, however no photography is allowed.
To be honest I find it difficult to believe it is the most colourful temple in the city. One thing that did strike me as interesting though were the small male and female figure statues in the museum hall: they were shagging! I've always maintained that if I ever take up a religion, that Buddhism sounds the best.
Reading this, you probably know that the Internet is making more of a global impression than any single religion. I haven't attended church / temple for a service other than tourism and friends' weddings.
China will have 300-million internet users by 2005.For China however, the catch is censorship.
If you are a fan of incense, at the Lama Temple there are many decent bins full of the firey sticks burning away and kneeling prayers afront each. Breathe it in!
