Pilgrims

July / Juillet 2009
The Temple of Heaven is a taoist temple and has some interesting properties. If fou stand in the middle and make some noise or clap your hand, the noise will immediatly come back to you from all around, thanks to the small walls you can see on the background of the picture. Those people behind are pilgrims praying and waiting to reach the center of this place for their final prayers.
Le Temple des Cieux est un temple taoïste et a quelques propriétés intéressantes. Si vous vous tenez en plein centre et y faites du bruit, ce bruit vous reviendra simultanément de partout autour de vous, gràace à ce petit mur que vous voyez en arrière-plan de la photo. Ces personnes derrière sont des pélerins priant en attendant de pouvoir atteindre le centre de la construction pour leurs prières finales.
