Kuan Yin standing on the dragon and lotus base.
We arrived the morning after the full moon and found people honoring their ancestors with prayers and food offerings.
After the ceremony looking from the front door and incense burner toward the pond and the back of Kuan Yin.
This is the interior of the Jade Temple. Looks just like a "regular" church -- pews and all except a Buddha is on the altar.
Shakyamuni Buddha calling the earth to witness.
After the Jade Temple we took a dim sum break at the Ocean Palace. I've posted about the Palace previously. This is one of the beautiful lotus buds in the pond outside the Palace. Having Vivian with us really increased our enjoyment of the day. She told us stories about dim sum and tea drinking that we will always remember. She is young and this chance to study in Beijing doesn't come around every day. She will be missed. I'm hoping she will start a blog and share her adventures.
We would temple trek one more day with Vivian before we had to say goodbye and good luck.
