Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: TEMPLE IN THE CITY

IMG_5549.jpg

My friend E. A. Wickland writing at Momus News posted some beautiful photos as part of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.

The challenge this week… Buildings and Trees.  I remembered this photo I took on Oahu when I helped my son-in-law Declan with a building project four years ago in Kailua.  This is what I wrote at the time when I originally posted the photo.

“Driving into Honolulu on the Pali Highway, we would see the top of this building peeking out of the trees…stopped  twice to take photos,  finally knew we had to find it, and see what it was.  Located in Nu’uanu Memorial Gardens, a Japanese cemetery, the pagoda was constructed in 1966… an exact replica of the Sanju Pagoda in Nara, Japan, built in the late 1500’s.  It is currently undergoing restoration, and was a beautiful sight on a rainy Hawaiian morning.”

SANJU PAGODA

Next to the Pagoda was the cemetery… perhaps this photo would qualify in a way… kind of little buildings, I guess.
