A Random Taiwanese Buddhist Garden : Kinmen Island

While riding around the charming Taiwanese Kinmen Island on a motorcycle, I came across a lovely Buddhist garden. While I was living in Taiwan I was used to occasional surprises of spiritual beauty in the middle of nowhere, but it’s been a while since I saw one of these. Out somewhere in central Kinmen, not really near any village or major attraction, was this lovely little Buddhist spot. There’s something about those Buddha statues that brings tranquility and peace, and I thought this one was especially nicely done, whatever this might be about.

 

Have a look…
