Kuan Im Teng Temple 2

At some point of time, this temple was standing closer to the sea and facing it. It was then dedicated not to the Goddess of Mercy, but to the patron of seamen. Over time, there was more construction in front of it and today, one standing at the open courtyard in front it can no longer make out the sea.

Your composition is excellent, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark, Ray.
Interesting how it's changed purpose. And a really nice angle for this photo, Ayush - it's very touching.
Ayush Basu: The heartening thing is that it still sees a healthy number of visitors, both local and foreign, Elizabeth. And urban redevelopment, well let us not get started on that.

Jolie composition ! Dommage pour la voiture.
Ayush Basu: Merci, Martine. Yes, I do wish it had not been there sad
I like the angle you took this from Ayush. Pity about the sea view.
Ayush Basu: Land reclamation - they are getting very good at it and then this is what happens, Chad.
Isn't it a coincidence that I mentioned that in the last shot.
Ayush Basu: I always enjoy your takes on my shots from this part of the world, Mary!
It's not just temples where that sort of infilling goes on these days.
Ayush Basu: You are right, Brian - all in the name of redevelopment.

Great angle, a lovely image Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark, Anne.
The world becomes more cluttered everywhere!
Ayush Basu: How right, Tom.
I like the way you have composed this picture Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark, Bill.
Well I suppose its the thought that counts, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Well they did not raze the temple to the ground, Frank.
So Indian! smile They even wear poo maalai! Do you understand Tamil?
Ayush Basu: No, LC. I do not understand the language, regretfully.

I like the figure in the foreground.
Ayush Basu: I am pleased with your comment, CP. And again I get an "expired" response to your portal.
That is interesting.
Ayush Basu: There are a lot of interesting things in Penang and I am only slowly beginning to realize them, Michael.
I guess it's bound to happen everywhere we go, Ayush, but it's nice to know the original intent?!
Ayush Basu: The things we do in urban development in the name of progress, Ginnie!

It is as if the temple is moving - from the sea to mercy. Almost like moving with the times.
Ayush Basu: I like your take on this, Louis and I think you are right!
Oh how things change! Even those that were never meant to...

Lovely capture Ayush... And a nice backstory... smile

I love how the parasol is protecting this statue. Love the scene and it looks well taken care of.
