"Temple n Sky"

My sunny skywatch this friday focuses on the other side of Manila.
People have this assumption that we're all about the Spanish and American
influences but,part of our history we share it with the Chinese culture as well.

A pagoda like structure, oriental in architecture, hidden along the
Streets of Narra.
It's a well-known Buddhist temple, mostly filled with people wearing "Red" theme outfits, esp. during the festive months like Chinese new year or celebrating the divine Buddha, their gods and goddesses.

I'll tell you more about its history next time.
meanwhile, i hope you enjoy this sight. ^0^

  4. Great architecture! In the so-called western world, we talk about Chinatowns. Is it the same in Manilla?

  10. I sure do! It's great architecture!

    Actually, the Chinese were here even before the Spanish! They traded and let others live their own lives. Unlike the Spanish who wanted to control the trade so they had to conquer too.

  13. Beautiful architecture. Since we don't have many Asian influences in Europe this looks to me very exotic and make me want to visit even more.
