Stupendous Stupa

Inside the grounds of the Temple of the Emerald Buddha I'm sporting a dashing pair of blue nylon trousers to cover my naked legs. This lovely stupa is gilded with gold mosaic tiles imported from Italy.

Good evening Grouser,
It is very impressive and beautiful. The clear colors of the overview, including details and architecture are excellent for expression. Have a nice evening and all the best. Greetings Christel

it looks unreal. i half expect the cowardly lion (surrounded by munchkins) to pop out and start singing.
I know it must be amazing to see. i've always wanted to go to the emerald city.
