Travel Photos Series#14-The Temple of a Thousand Faces (The Bayon Temple of Cambodia)

The Bayon Temple

I would never forget this temple after my visit to Siem Reap, Cambodia in Year 2013. Although Angkor Wat is the "star"temple where many tourists rush to visit, please do not miss the Bayon temple. Upon setting eyes on the facade of the temple, you will seemingly feel thousand of faces smiling at you. I had the lasting impression that the temple was greeting and welcoming me to it's premises.

Read my trip to Siem Reap and review of the sacred temples here. This photo was taken on 7 June 2013.

Travel Photos Series#13-A Traditional Japanese Wedding Procession

Traditional Japanese Wedding Procession
I went to Meiji Jingu Shrine at Tokyo with a main purpose. It was to witness a traditional Japanese wedding at the popular religious site. I was not disappointed as there were many wedding processions taking place on that day (1 June 2014). Though Japan is a modern country, traditional practices and cultures still hold  important places in many Japaneses'hearts.

Travel Photos Series#12-Kirin Sculpture at Wong Tai Sin Temple, Hong Kong

Kirin Sculpture at Wong Tai Sin Temple

I remembered when I first came to Hong Kong many years back, Wong Tai Sin Temple was the very first destination that I visited. It is the most famous temple here and you are deemed not to have visited Hong Kong if you have not pay it a visit. There were extensive renovation  over the years and I personally felt the place has become overly commercialized to attract tourists. Nevertheless, I still love to visit the temple as it offers many photo capturing opportunities with it's fabulous architectures and beautiful gardens.

This photo was taken on 3 December 2014. I presented it in black and white to reflect the rustic charm of this religious ground.
