Photographer's Note

Baoguo Monastery is in Emei town, at the foot of Emei Shan (or mountain). Taken on an overcast winters' day.

"This monastery was built in the 16th century, enlarged in the 17th century by Emperor Kangxi, and rebuilt in recent years. Its 3.5 meter porcelain Buddha, made in 1415, is housed near the Sutra Library. A big bell, also made in the Ming Dynasty with a weight of 12.5 tons, has more than 60,000 characters on it. The sound produced by the bell is so deep that its echo spreads as far as 15 kilometres."
