Petaling Street pt.8


Petaling Street/Chinatown is more than the cheap shopping. Walking around the greater area shows you many interesting things. There's a wet market, temples, little antique shops, even a dentures shop (I'll post that tomorrow.)

Here's one of the 2 guardian statues at the entrance of a Chinese temple. I took a picture of this one instead of the other because he looked invitingly at me. And because of him, I entered the temple. The scent of insense welcomed me as I looked up and saw them hanging from the ceiling. Sat on a bench for a couple of minutes. Got up, walked out and continued my frolics down the street.

What a beautiful statue. So colorful! Not at all like the drab gray and bronze statues one sees here.

Guardian figures are usually very imposing, as is this one. Not as fierce as some tho. Great colours.

Seems like it would be a very complex scent environment, that market...
