Pagoda of 10,000 Buddhas

I got inspired to share these photos while browsing for a photo to submit for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details.

My entry for the weekly photo challenge was of the roof details of the Buddha Tooth and Relic Temple and Museum in Chinatown, Singapore. (See post here.)

Behind me is the Buddhist Temple from the outside

In the rooftop of the same temple is a usual Orchid Garden with a pagoda in the middle.
This pagoda houses the large Vairocana Buddha Prayer Wheel in the middle and 10,000 small Buddha statues in all its four walls. Both prayer wheel and Buddha statues take room from what seems like floor to the ceiling.

The last two photos below were taken by Jenna, my travel buddy during this trip.
One picture shows a wall of tiny Buddhas, and the other is a zoomed in version.
The details of all these are amazing.

Pagoda Tragedy!

I miss traveling.
I miss being tired from discovering new places.
I miss getting lost and eventually finding the way.
