Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

Today is the 15th day of the Lunar month and there was a religious ceremony in the temple. There was a group of monks probably from Thailand or Sri Lanka leaving the temple and inside there was a prayer session led by a senior monk. We were free to wander around the temple to take photos. There were a number of tourists, cameras in hand, taking pictures of the beautiful carvings and artefacts in the temple. This morning, I was fascinated by the lamps and lanterns and also the wood carvings of a dragon and lotus flowers.
