Once again we were treated to a visual feast, this time the perfect blend of man-made elegance and natural splendor.
What a perfect backdrop for Jin and Sun's special day.
I particularly love the look Jin and Sun gave me when they noticed I had crashed their wedding. I figured if Jacob can do it, why not me?
One slight disappointment -- the pond in front of the temple had been drained, perhaps for cleaning or repairs.
Fortunately there is another koi pond to the side of the temple.
Here are a couple of different views of the temple, angles that didn't appear on the show.
Detail of the roof. Apparently there is a large Buddha within the temple but I didn't venture inside to see.
The temple grounds are filled with lovely plants, trees and flowers; a pleasing mix of heights and colors.
There are gravestones in behind the temple. I found one of the names to be of particular interest. Didn't spot Paulo, though.
