Tranquillity

Chengdu Wu Hou Shrine - China

Wuhou Temple (Memorial Temple of Marquis Wu) is dedicated to Zhuge Liang, the Marquis Wu (Wuhou) of Kingdom of Shu in the Three Kingdoms Period (220 - 280).

Zhuge Liang was the personification of noble character and intelligence. Memorial architectures erected in many places after his death include a famous one in Chendu.

Located in the south suburb of Chengdu, the temple covers 37,000 square meters (398,277 square feet). The date of its establishment is unclear, only that it was built next to the temple of Liu Bei, the emperor of Shu. It was combined with the Temple of Liu Bei at the beginning of the Ming Dynasty; consequently, the entrance plaque reads 'Zhaolie Temple of Han Dynasty' (Zhaolie is the posthumous title of Liu Bei). The current temple was rebuilt in 1672. Surrounded by old cypresses and classical red walls, it evokes nostalgia.

The main body of the temple is divided into five sections, the Gate, the second Gate, the Hall of Liu Bei, the corridor, and the Hall of Zhuge Liang, all of which run south to north. Inside, clay sculptures of Shu Emperor and ministers stand together, making them a special feature.

The most valuable cultural relic here is the stele set up in 809. This huge stele 367-centimeter (144-inch) high and 95-centimeter (37-inch) wide is called the Triple-Success Stele. The three successes are: an article written by Pei Du, a famous minister of the Tang Dynasty who served four emperors in succession, calligraphy by Liu Gongquan, one of the most brilliant calligraphers in Chinese history, and a statement about the morality and achievements of Zhuge Liang.

Gatorade


Gatorade - Yading national level reserve in Daocheng County, in the southwest of Sichuan Province, China. The Yading Nature Reserve in the Kham region of Sichuan is one of the most beautiful places on the Tibetan Plateau. 


The Yading Nature Reserve is found in western Sichuan’s Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture དཀར་མཛེས་བོད་རིགས་རང་སྐྱོང་ཁུལ་ in the traditional Tibetan region of Kham. Garze དཀར་མཛེས་, known in Chinese as Ganzi , is divided into 18 counties covering an area of 151,000 square kilometers (58,300 square miles). Yading is located in southern Daocheng county, which is known as Dapba འདབ་པ་ in Tibetan. The Yading Nature Reserve covers an area of 1344 square kilometers (520 square miles) and has an average elevation of well over 4000 meters.

Inside the Yading Nature Reserve are the 3 holy mountains of Chenresig, rising to 6032 meters, Chana Dorje and Jampelyang, which both rise to 5958 meters. These 3 snow-capped peaks sit in a triangle formation with forested valleys, clear rivers, glacier-fed lakes and abundant wildlife between them. The Tibetan name for Yading is “Nyingden” ཉིང་རྟེན་, however, signs in the region regularly use the term “Aden”. The local Tibetan name for the area around the 3 holy mountains is “Rigsum Gonpo”. In Tibetan, the names of the mountains mean “Wisdom” (Jampelyang), “Power” (Chana Dorje) and “Compassion” (Chenresig). This region was designated as a nature reserve in the late 1990’s.

Kaleidoscopic - Port Macquarie - NSW - Australia - Taken with Canon Sony A7RII and Canon EF24-70mm F/2.8 USM Lens

A paradise of natural attractions and outdoor adventures, Port Macquarie is only four hours’ drive north of Sydney on the NSW North Coast. The city is home to a tempting range of delicious food at cafes and restaurants and an exciting events calendar of arts, sports and festivals.

Two top attractions are the Koala Hospital and the Billabong Koala and Wildlife Park, home to a giant saltwater crocodile called Shrek. Explore the beautiful Hastings River, where succulent oysters grow, and spot dolphins on a cruise with Port Venture Cruises and Port Macquarie Cruise Adventures.

Whale-watching cruises depart the harbour at Port Macquarie between May and November, when thousands of whales migrate along the coast, including humpbacks, the stars of the annual journey. With the sparkling ocean teeming with fish, deep-sea fishing charters are popular all year.

Shanghai Tower
Shanghai Tower


Shanghai has a long history as a gateway to China and is a renowned international metropolis drawing more and more attention from all over the world. Situated on the estuary of Yangtze River, it serves as the most influential economic, financial, international trade, cultural, science and technology centre in East China. Also it is a popular destination for visitors to sense the pulsating development of the country.


In addition to its modernisation, the city's multicultural flair endows it with a unique glamour. Here, one finds the perfect blend of cultures, the modern and the traditional , and the western and the oriental. New skyscrapers and old Shikumen together draw the skyline of the city. Western customs and Chinese traditions intertwined and formed the city's culture, making a visitor's stay truly memorable.
