Thean Hou temple at Chinese New Year

One afternoon while visiting Kuala Lumpur, I decided to visit Thean Hou temple. It was during Chinese New Year and the red lanterns draped from the temple created magnificent patterns of color and shadow. I joined in the ceremony to chant to the Medicine Buddha. Afterwards, I explored every corner of the temple and captured this photo. What a special day it was!
