  Inside the Lama temple
by filipdebont

So the Lama temple is just more then one big building.

It is a series of temples with in between a kind of courtyard. In front of each temple you find a box were you can place your incense, and were the believers are praying (see the smoke on the picture around the incense box).

Some of these temples have beautiful statues inside. Officially it is prohibited to make pictures inside the temples. But with a small digital camera a lot is possible . . .
