Temple Fair in Central


We are back to Central because there's a Temple Fair at the waterfront. Here we have a traditional worship podium side by side with a symbol of technology (the 88-storey International Finance Centre 2 also seen in photos on April 9 & 16). The Temple Fair is an event organised by the Tourism Board, and from what I saw, the locals are equally interested in it.

See a Google Earth image or more about the Temple Fair.

Great contrast- Two temples, the traditional one and the modern temple for the worship of material

I see it's illuminated, it would be nice to see at night.

very nice. i agree with everyone on the constrast of the two towers. Unfortunately, in this case, the bland modern one will stand longer.

Hi everybody...I'm glad you like this because after I read Menggarang's comment last night I just couldn't wait to go out and take photos. Thanks for the suggestion and I welcome everybody to make more. To Chantal: this blog is helping me to see the beauty of HK which I didn't see before...
