The temple is somewhat strange because it displays an exotic exhibition of donated items. Ranging from old spectacles and jewelry to very expensive and quite recent models of Mercedes-Benz automobiles. It also includes some rare items of furniture and some old-timer automobiles as well.

Love #3. My father was a watch maker/repairman before becoming an engineer. He also had hundreds of watches in a collection! Lovely images Antonio.

Sometime they do if the temple needs money.

Very very strange temple, more like a museum, I guess people sacrifice anything when they are true believers. #2 Is really nicely done, love the shadows and the colors. Your last days of Sri Lanka are like my last days of Australia, want to say good bye but there are still a few more things worth sharing..... it reminds me of the song "The Long Goodbye"😀

Your last day keeps on lasting, Antonio smile But replacing old cars by new ones and "giving" the old stuff to the temple is definitely an idea worth "shooting" smile

I think you're right but what can I do? So many interesting things to show smile The amount of gifts inside this temple was huge.

Now you're at the last day I wonder if you will do a final 'best of' containing your favourite photos across the trip?

I think most people are already fed up with so many days of Sri Lanka. 😀 But I really appreciate your thoughts about this subject. Thanks Paul
