The Religions. by leananiemand

The Religions.

Sri Lanka is a fascinating country with many religions. Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and Christians all seem to mix well and most villages will have a church, a Buddhist stupa, a mosque as well as a Hindu temple. My personal favorite must be the very ornate Hindu temples and I can hardly cycle past one without taking a pic. I also love the Buddhist monks with their very bright robes.
Awesome portrait

Fabulous shot of ancient building, tranquillity of monastery life, contrasted with use of modern technology. Captured a lot in this one x

The mix of religions sounds great (if they live in peace together) As we have the saying : two religions on one pillow, the devil sleeps between them.
Great capture of the monk and garden.

I love the mix of all the religions and the multicultural diversity. This is another brilliant shot like the one in Oman that draws us right into that territory that we are forbidden to enter. FAV!! Oh, and have you gotten up early to watch the monks going out for alms?
