Hai Inn Temple

Hai Inn Temple, situated off Bricklands Road in Singapore. It is said to be built in the pure land (that is, the land of ultimate bliss in the realm of the Buddha) Buddhist tradition. I went there on a weekend and it was very peaceful. Only resident monks and a few visiting devotees were to be seen. This is the entrance to the main temple with a canopy providing shelter from the hot sun and occasional downpours to praying devotees.

I imagine that rather impressive canopy filters the hot sun, also, Ayush.

Did you beat out a little rhythm on that drum?

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to see this wonderful building, Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you for visiting smile
Such an interesting place... Nice angle. ... I was wondering if the floor is tiled or a softer material.
Ayush Basu: Thanks for the comment J. It is a tiled floor with the cushion for the devotees

This looks so Eastern Ayush, but then it should, of course. The small pantomime bridge looks intriguing.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for your comment Chad. Have you been to this part of the world yet? Lots of photography opportunities
A good use of HDR here Ayush, fascinating subject!
Ayush Basu: Thank you. Right said Fred
I'm not sure that the Buddha, who preached simplicity, would approve of such a sumptuous place, Ayush - but it's a great pic!
Ayush Basu: You have a point there Tom. The monks' quarters are fairly minimal though
enjoyable to watch your site. brilliant shot with perfect color blend in wide angle.
Ayush Basu: A place worth a visit and not too far from my home
This is so HDR.
Beautiful!
