A Scenic Sunday at Perak Cave Temple (霹雳洞)

This is another view of the scenic garden featuring Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy at Perak Cave Temple (Chinese: 霹雳洞). To see the full front view of Guan Yin, please click here.

Graceful willows inspire the mind.
A gentle sway and it whispers, what a great place to unwind.
Some beautiful bonsais,
A stone inscription that makes me sigh.
Some pebbles, rocks and boulders, a goddess so devine.
The garden is complete with the summer pavilion just behind.

This doggie dear is my model for the day. He just laid there, willingly posing for me. I think he is a natural. He is wearing a doggie badge around his neck with a message that the owner has a dog licence to keep him. Strays are rounded up and caught by the authorities on a regular basis. I guess this temple is animal friendly.

Monkeys roam freely and have fun here too. Look! I have another willing model. Actually, she looked at me, than turn a little, and stayed still for a moment while I took her picture, with flash and all. What a beautiful pose.

Bougainvilleas are found everywhere in Ipoh. This one is blooming profusely now. After all, Ipoh is also named Bougainvillea City.

This is my entry for the following fun and wonderful weekly memes:
