The Tablescaper dropped by and invited me to post at her weekly meme Oh, the PLACES I've been!
Her rules are:
You must be a FOLLOWER for The Tablescaper. (done)
Your post must be about a PLACE.
Your post must contain a link to The Tablescaper.
It may be your photos from a fantastic trip abroad…
…or maybe just your favorite shop around the corner from where you live.
May 2009 - Xian China
Temple of the Eight Immortals (Ba Xian An in Chinese, also, Eight Immortals Palace, formerly Eight Immortals Nunnery), as its name indicates, is mainly dedicated to the legendary Eight Immortals: Han Zhongli, Zhang Guolao, Han Xiangzi, Tieguai Li, Cao Guojiu, Lv Dongbin, Lan Caihe and He Xiangu. Located on Changle Fang Street in the eastern suburb, it is the biggest Taoist temple in Xian and is a famous Taoist architecture in northwest China.
I loved this buddha and was sorry that we didn't have a longer time to wander around this temple as we had reservations for Dumplings and Opera!
In coming weeks I will post more photos of this temple.
That is a GORGEOUS Buddha and I can see why you wanted to spend more time with it!ReplyDelete

So happy that you joined "Oh the PLACES I've been!". What a neat Buddha!I'm looking forward to your future posts on the temple.ReplyDelete
