Prayer altar...

By Chinga
This "meditative" monkey was at a prayer altar in Dambulla's Buddhist Temple. (Sri Lanka).
The Temple is a huge rock carved monastery built 22 centures ago. It has 160 huge Bhudha statues and some wonderful buddhist wall mural paintings still in pristine condition due to being inside the rock caves away from daylight.
Prior to the site being a buddhist temple the site was home to prehistoric people and there was evidence of burial sites with human skeletons dated more than 2700 years old.
I felt it was a very special place to visit...

A good set, I like V2 as it looks like he is saying, ''I am not turning around until you put that camera away''. - gary
