Inside a Buddhist Temple?

Answer

The main sanctuary of the temple is called the Buddha Hall which has a long sloping roof with curled ridges, large supporting columns and a collection of decorative carvings. The inside of the temple is plainly furnished with dim candle lights surrounding the altar. There are images of Buddha and other lesser deities and little bells on cushions. There are also lacquer boxes with scrolls of sutras.

A Buddhist Temple is usually resplendent in brightly coloured walls, usually gold. At the front there is the giant statue of the Buddha together with representations of the Four Elements: candles (fire), rice offerings (earth), a water jar (water) and an incense burner (air). In some temples you will find meditation cushions, an offering box and wall paintings and murals depicting the life of the Buddha.
