Photographer's Note

The Holy Longevity Monastery is a Buddhist Temple located at the entrance of the Baodingshan site, one of the several places belonging to the Dazu group of carvings.

In the area of Dazu there are 5 sites with an impressive assembly of 50,000 statues carved in the rock, declared as World Heritage Protected Site by UNESCO. I will post some picture of these unique place.

One of the things that impress me more in many buddhist temples is the cloud of smoke created by the burning of incense sticks in front of the main entrance. This gives them an atmosphere of mysticism and spirituality.
