Heart of Love River and Lotus Pond

Beautiful sunny day today and we borrowed bikes from our hotel to cycle along the river Love. What an excellent name, and we cycled to the Heart area.

I had a little break on the way, relaxing on a brick settee in a surprising all brick living room scene. I don't know how they made it, but I would love to have one in my garden at home.

Our destination was the Lotus Pond, which turned out to be more of a lake. We cycled around it and on then to three incredible temples, all surrounded by lotus flowers.
I know nothing about the background to the temples, why you walk in through the dragon's or tiger's mouth, through it's body and then out by the tail. There were no signs, no entrance fee and no staff around, and only a few other tourists.
Completely amazing place.
