Photographer's Note

I came out of the temple (I visited MANY temples and I haven't shown almost nothing of them) when I saw this scene of the mother, or grandma, teaching baby boy to pray. I have found this scene so nice that show it to you although I see the tilt. I was inspired by Gyorgy and cloned out some unnecessary pieces of persons. The red hassock (something for kneeling) are very characteristic feature in Chinese temples.

China is a multi-religious country. Taoism, Buddhism, Islamism, Protestantism and Catholicism have all developed quite a following in this country. Freedom of belief is a government policy, and normal religious activities are protected by the constitution.
Buddhism spread from India to China some 2,000 years ago. Chinese Buddhism may be classified according to languages into three communities: Mandarin, Tibetan and Bali. Most of the Mandarin Buddhist believers are Han Chinese while Tibetan Buddhist (generally called Lamaist) believers are people of the Tibetan, Mongolian, Yugur, Lhoba, Moinba and Tujia nationalities, and Bali Buddhist believers are people of the Dai and Bulang ethnic groups that mainly live in Yunnan Province. The Buddhist communities are the largest religious communities in China. However, since quite a few of Han believers are not always steadfast followers of Buddhism, it is hard to count their exact numbers.

I visited mainly Buddhist and a few Taoist temples.

In Workshops the original picture of the main upload and another scene.
