CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

What is the red/white striping? Something to do with building work? It surely can't be part of the design of the temple!

@CElliottUK: In some temple compound walls, Red and white stripes are seen. Thanks Chris :)

A beautiful capture Sam! This temple seems much plainer and less ornate than others you have shown us. Is there a significance here? ;-)
