Elsewhere in Luo Yang . . .

. . . is the Baima temple complex.

The White Horse temple is purported to be the first Buddhist temple in China.

The scriptures were brought to the area on two white horses, which are commemorated in front of the temple complex.

A particularly pious worshipper.

As in most temples in China, joss is freely burnt.

The temple grounds contain extensive gardens (most likely full of peonies, the flower of Luo Yang). But not much can be seen in winter.

More recently, a replica of an Indian Buddhist temple (the Sanchi Stupa) and a Thai Buddhist temple have been built on the grounds.

One of many shrines.
