I cannot live too far from artistical views

It s quite visible from my window and easy to reach, They have called it Western Monastery. Probably beacause its architectural features are not 100% Chinese. It could be defined as an hybrid of Manciurian style (one of the last dinasties)  and modern way of building the temples in this side of the world. Infact the Yeun Yeun temple is a mix of taoism, buddhism and confucianism as explicated in an HK leisure website. These kind of structures have always attracted many people, never mind they are stylishly original or not. People like to watch the magnificent totality of their design. The imposing beauty. The colours. They do not really pay attention to the historical point of view and the subtle meaning. Especially here in Hong Kong. In general we are like children who play with the picture they see, commenting colors and shapes. Not the human value. Few are the people who are really inetrested in understanding how the history of a building developed, who was living there before and now, how old it is and other details.
