No no, other places are nicer :D

It's a place where you can pray indeed, but most pray in the main buildings and do an ofeer to buddha

Je hebt gelijk, er is daar een man aan't slapen op de grond. Die persoon was gewoon aan't genieten van de rust en vooral van de schaduw, want het was heel warm gisteren. In die tempel waren een tiental mannen aanwezig die hier en daar sliepen, volgens mij daklozen...

I think there's a man in the floor... What is he doing? praying?

:iconlux69aeterna:
lux69aeterna Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2008   Photographer
Yes indeed, there's a man there, even more than one in whole of the temple. To my point of view those were homeless that found a place to rest in the shade because it was very hot...

Yes indeed, you are right Tatiana :) There were even more people sleeping in the shade. It was sunny yesterday, so at least 33-34 degrees. That kills with all the pollution :)

Indeed, it was a very "typical" view, even though i hadn't seen much people sleeping in temples before. But in this one, at least 10 people that were resting in the shade :)

:) I sure would love to doze off in watched over by the gods :D Even though we do have deities scattered around the place, an assembly of them is unheard of :D

The place must really be a serene and peaceful one :D
