Losing my religion….

I know there’s been lots of photos of temples already, but this one – Erdene Zuu – is particularly cool.

Mongolians are pretty crazy keen on this place, UNESCO is protecting the site, and it’s still operating as a Buddhist temple.

It’s also one of the only places Ee and I have been able to access an English speaking guide, and she was great. So we now know what we’re looking at, which helps a lot.

Not that we’re not VERY creative and inventive when we make up our own interpretations of religious things. I think our version of what the different dimensions of hell in a painting back in Beijing, should have been recorded for prosperity – not only for being funny but also as proof that Ee and I would make awesome vengeful Gods…

But back to today’s temple. Herewith, many photos of cool Buddhist temple-y things…
