More Byodo-In temple and Christian mausoleum...

Here is a very dark photo of the HUGE Buddha inside the Byodo-In temple on Oahu. There were no lights inside the temple, and it is a *very* tall room. The reason the photo is so dark is because the Buddha is so large, the flash could not reach. The railing visible at the bottom of the photo is at waist height.

Next to the Byodo-In temple is a Christian chapel, mausoleum and cemetery. Some of the crypts had photos of the occupants (while living) taped to the marble. These two below had interesting offerings...

Notice the handknitted lei above and the offering of Sapporo beer below...
