Wu Tai Shan Temple

After getting off the lift we toured a scenic mountain temple (top right. All temples have incense burners in front of them (top left). The designs and size varies and they can be square, rectagular, or round. All are intricate works of art though. Bottom right is a closeup of the artwork on the incense burner. The Chinese character in the center is fo (second tone or "fo2") which is the word for Buddha. On the sides are dragons columns and Lotus flowers (Botanical name: Nelumbinis) in vases.
