The white manís grave

Hello forum!

Here some shoot done in a famous Chinese Buddhist temple in the island of Penang in Malaysia that in the old time was called “white man’s grave” because the malaria problem.

The island’s history is fascinating so I probably expected too much. The city of Georgetown/Penang is chaotic and smelly with cars stuck in traffic anywhere. The pollution is unsustainable and can barely breathe.

While there may be some truth, I think "barely breathe" is a bit extreme, don't you think? There's order in chaos . BTW, nice shots...

Hi there, and thanks for all the comments.

Anyone noted the swastikas in #3 and #4 ???

Swastikas are all over in Malaysia both in Chinese or Indian temple.

As you can see that symbol is not rotated, as in nazi, but is regular and I think mean the constant cycle of life of rebirths for Buddhist and Hindu.
