Temple of the Emperor of the Dark Heaven

On Lotus Pond, near the temples and pagodas I posted about yesterday, is the Temple of the Emperor of the Dark Heaven, a shrine dedicated to a god who in the Taoist religion defeated a snake and turtle and symbolizes the dominance of good over evil.

He’s a fascinating site to behold, and just one of many, many temples and large statues along the lake.
