Photographer's Note

A moody morning at the buddhist caves, Hangzhou, China. The place was full of tourist activity with mountain side full of Cave temples, reminding me a lot of Hindu cave temples at ellora & Ajanta... These are supposed to be ancient ones where the early buddhist monks stayed & meditated. I guessed it should have been during the time when Sangamitra, daughter of Ashoka moved around these places spreading early buddhism. Some one needs to verify this.
Though very spell binding, was pretty dull for the kids accompanying the families & hence were restless. Here is a small buddha ascending his "throne", among the cheering supporters.....
This is a scanned image with a bit of PP.
