Temple Roof Detail

Each building is roofed in the classical Chinese style with curved ridge-lines surmounted with figurines to protect the roof. The more elaborate and the greater the number of these figurines the more important is the building so protected. These 'guard dogs' protect the roof of the main structure in the temple complex.

Many thanks for your visits and comments. I will try to upload on a daily basis and while we are now staying in a hotel in Beijing and have Internet access I may not have time to catch up with my commenting on your captures.

For more information and to follow the progress of our time away I am maintaining a 'blog', if you are interested, here is a link http://2013cruise.travellerspoint.com/
