Columbarium at Temple of Ten Thousand Buddhas - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
A panorama showing the new columbarium (storage room for cremated ashes). This room was still under construction, but eventually every one of the slots in the walls will contain remains, and the names of the interred will be marked on the front. In the middle of the room is a large Buddha statue. Unnervingly, this statue had a neon light in the middle of it's forehead that kept changing colour.
