Very red. I wonder what the significance of the red is in Buddhist traditions...

Joy said...

That is quite a striking shade of red.

Stopping by on my first Wordless Wednesday :o)

I wonder if the color of the door is significant in some way? These days any time I see "Windows" I think "7". Tomorrow is the big day. I think MS may have finally hit a home run with this one. I am just so glad I was able to run XP on all 6 of our computers until now. Never had to deal with the dreaded Vista, thank goodness. Whoa, a bit off topic, but Happy WW anyway!

Beautifully photographed! I would guess that long ago all religions had to protect the churches and temples from the non-believers (and sometimes other religions). Thus strong buildings and sturdy doors were a must.
