T is for Temple

This is a rather typical Chinese style Buddhist temple located on the Coastal Road on Manila Bay. Does anyone know its name besides just Chinese Temple?

Manila, 2010

It's up to the letter T over at ABC Wednesday today.

This is a gorgeous temple, Francisca! Hmmm. You're making me wonder if there are any temples in the Toronto area like this. Hmmm.

A very beautiful temple... Love the bright colors.

Pondering nomenclature, to quote Roger, and as I ponder, something is niggling at the back of my mind to say I once knew the word, but it completely escapes me now.

I thought this was in China. But Philippines, WOW!!!

I did hear that the Chinese there are very rich.

It is just such a beautiful temple - so much to see and appreciate :-)

Jacob said...

Don't know its name. Wouldn't even have known it was a Buddhist temple. But it's gorgeous! Those roof lines, the colors - I've got to visit Asia one of these days!

Hope you're not working too hard!
