From the photographer: "Northern stars of the Big Dipper and Constellation Leo shines above the Wanfo Summit at the World Heritage site of Mount Emei in China. Mount Emei is one of the four holy lands of Chinese Buddhism. And the Wanfo Summit, is the house of the mountain`s patron deity, Bodhisattva Samantabhadra, with ten thousands of Buddhas around it. As well as the other 30 ones at Mount Emei, this temple is in local traditional style. The advanced architectural and building techniques are the quintessence of Chinese temple architecture."
