GZ 09: Main Gate

Entry to the Guangxiao Temple. Through the doorway, is the way to proceed to the rest of the temple complex. 


Seen below is a devotee offering incense sticks to the fearful warrior gods. Perhaps they were not entirely satisfied by the quantum of incense sticks.

Marvellous characters, Ayush...I wouldn't mind having them as "greeters" at my door.
Ayush Basu: You may suddenly find yourself not being visited by guests too often then grin
The gods definitely look slightly displeased.
Ayush Basu: "You prayed for my help to get you a favourable hand at that gambling table, and all I get in return is a couple of incense sticks? Off with your head!"

"Fearful" seems to be the operative word, Ayush. But lots of color, too!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Ginnie. This place seemed to be fairly well maintained

The warrior gods can count? Very colourful.
Ayush Basu: Maybe they just eyeball the amount of smoke grin Thank you very much, Louis.
The gate is so impressive. Good capture.
