photoblog image Kuan Im Teng Temple 3

Kuan Im Teng Temple 3

Kuan Yin Teng is located along Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, and is roughly in between Masjid Kapitan Keling and St. George's Church. It is not very brightly painted (I suppose it has not been renovated in recent times) nor was it particularly sizable, but it is the oldest. It is still of importance - there are a lot of devotees visiting it, not just tourists but people making their prayers and wishes, devotees purchasing caged birds and setting them free and lighting candles and/or joss sticks.

The incense smoke makes this image especially interesting, Ayush.
That makes a really interesting shot.
Nice smoky shot, Ayush! Purchasing caged birds and setting them free is a new one on me...

I wonder how many times a day they have to renew these sticks. I imagine the smell was sweet. And yes everything for good luck.
The incense ash itself gives half the idea of how important this place is to the people... Of its rich history...

And nice capture Ayush... Especially the smoke... smile
you framed this perfectly Ayush it's the prayers from all of these joss sticks that are important....petersmile
I was there too but didn't get to take many pictures, I saw many poor people begging for money there. sad So sad did you see any there?
I do like your point of focus on the incense sticks, Ayush.

I can just imagine the smell. I find the setting free of caged birds a most interesting commercial endeavour.
