Chuang Yen Monastery

Approaching the Great Buddha Hall,

home of the largest indoor sculpture of Buddha in the western hemisphere,

surrounded by 10,000 little Buddhas.

Kuan Yin Hall is home to this 1,000 year old statue of Kuan Yin.

Statues line the paths leading to the monastery buildings.

Celebrating the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Ox. A great way to slow down and appreciate the cultural diversity surrounding me.
