Scott and Katie can be picked out.
A performance was held here, where performers played drums and people dressed as warriors did a march.
Up these stairs, we come to a temple where swallows fly overhead and swoop down on mosquitoes. This part is filled with tourists as they make their way to and fro the bazaar.
At the booth where you can pick up the scroll and paper, a Buddha greets you. Behind are some tourists practicing their writing skills. Again, this is in the Buddhist temple.
You probably cannot see from here, but on the day we visited the Buddhist temple, we saw one of Siddhartha's finger bone. If I would guess, it would be his pinky. Monks and tourists pray together.
This is pool in front of the temple. The colors are off because the day was truly sunny as could be.
I wish I could go up to the diamond, but tourist agencies pretty much kept us inside the building.
Along the road to the Buddha temple, there are a few large golden Buddha statues.
We had taken a train to get from the foot of the pathway to the head. However, I was so lucky to get clear shots of each of each statue.

In each water lily is a pink candle.

Nancy is in front of the lion statue with a playful imitation.

You can actually move this ball, which makes statue carving pretty amazing. It's a little secret of the temple we visited.
I had such an amazing sight of the peasant's life. This is only a small part of the Xi'an peasant lifestyle.
We were just steps away from reaching to the tower. Still in the temple.
This is near the pond
