Ching Chung Koon Temple

Ching Chung Koon Temple
These ceramic figurines are from a famous town in Southern China called Shiwan. The figurines are known as 石灣公仔(Shiwan dolls) and often depict famous historical people, or legends and saints etc

Taoist temple Ching Chung Koon is famous for many things, amongst which is its bonsai garden.

Here are links related to Ching Chung Koon. My Dutch friends would be amused (as I was) that Wikipedia has Ching Chung Koon entries in only three languages: Chinese, English and Dutch.
