Temple of Fusion X Seagull & Sakura Season: KunMing Spring Excursion

Yuan Tong Temple 圓通禪寺

oldest temple in KunMing

can be traced back as long

Tang Dynasty, dated 1,200 years

the architecture is unmistakably

really classically oriental yet

the statues aren’t really so

a little mixture of Tibetan colors and

the bronze statue of Buddha is

more declined to be associated with

IndoChina’s Theravada style

and there’s a Theravada

IndoChina Buddhist hall in there

the garden is kinda impressive

the feeling of being surrounded by

pool of calm water yet

interconnected with civilization and

human intelligence

haha I don’t know what am I

trying to describe, here

I was right in time for

the blooming sakura too

and walking down the main road

all the way to the Green Lake 翠湖

for the Siberian seagulls who

stop by during winter-spring season

I doubt they understand Mandarin

yet I have low proficiency for

any European languages except

the one I am typing with right now

so? wassup
