    Sri Lankan temple

    Sri Lankan temple

    The temple's exterior is here. Visitors in reality have not much of choice to snap its exterior but only from this same angle as mine. The reason is the water tower that built behind the temple just happened to be as tall as the temple and no matter where I stand, the focus has to be this particular one to avoid the unnecessary water tower. I think that's the happiness of photo shooting in travel.

    Chinese Joss-sticks involved

    Now that the Chinese Joss-sticks is involved. Look at the photo where you can see a golden bowl in the middle front portion of the structure in blue. That's typical Malaysian-Chinese Joss-sticks use to pray for money and prosperity but somehow also involved here with the Sri Lankan culture of Theravada Buddhism. So I guess this is a cultural mix temple.

    Sri Lankan temple

    This is the doorway but the day I visit it was closed. Instead I walk through via the small side door.

    The construction was partly sponsored by Malaysian-Chinese therefore if you look closer at the doorway, it has two stone Qilin (Chinese Lion) placing at each side of the doorway. It looks funny somehow but I think probably the contractor was a Chinese.

    Please remember my name

    This is very obvious right in the middle of the temple so that visitors can see not only the Buddha but also able to notice the existence of someone else which is also very important.

    I thought the Buddha taught his followers to forget names and don't take oneself too important.

    Sri Lankan cultures

    If you visit Sentul, please try the Sri Lankan temple. This Buddhist temple was partly sponsored by the local Tanglang (Malaysian-Chinese) where you can see they have carvings of donator's names on the walls. Please remember their names as that was the Buddha's teaching?

    The area where the temple located was very dirty as it is only a road away from Kampung Chubadak.

    Chinese Qilin

    This is the Qilin I mentioned at the bottom of the doorway as decoration purpose to make a cross cultural mix temple. If that's they concept, the name has to change to Sri Lankan-Chinese temple.
