Sky-watching at Lon Hua Temple


Lon Hua Temple, Davao City

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls.

~ Mother Teresa

Thank you, guys, for visiting my sky-watch post. I appreciate your visit and kind comments.:D

Panaderos,
Sorry, i have no idea how old this temple is. But it is the biggest Buddhist temple in Mindanao so I thought it was worth visiting.:D

luna miranda said...

hi, dong! i also wanted to visit mosques but my friend [from davao] advised me that we might not be allowed to enter because it was a friday, and i was wearing a low-necked sleeveless top.:D

so this temple was a great stopover...and it goes to show that it's possible for christians, muslims, buddhist, etc. to live together peacefully.
