The first stop on my recent six day China trip, after touching down at Nanjing Airport, was Wuxi - a city situation between Nanjing and Shanghai, in the Jiangsu Province.
Our plane was delayed from Hong Kong, so a few hours were lost on the first day. We had an early dinner (they have dinner around 5pm!) and went back to the hotel to recharge for the early start the next day.
One of the many beautiful buildings at Lingshan (
Lingshan Grand Buddha (
It was a rainy day unfortunately, but luckily there was transport in golf buggy type carts from the entrance to the Brahma Palace (
I was amazed by the intricate details on some of the temples
The grey skies actually turned out nicely in the pics (this is said in hindsight though, as I was cursing the rain on the day, as you do when you are on holidays and it rains!)
Outside of the Brahma Palace - parts of it were under construction during our visit, hence why I didn't take any pictures of the whole building
Intricate carvings inside the Brahma Palace. Before we entered, we had to put covers on our shoes to protect their pristine floors
Wood carvings with crazy amounts of detail
These wood carvings were everywhere I looked on the walls
Ceilings with an insane amount of detail
The Brahma was only recently built, in 2008
I was in awe after walking through the main exhibition hall at the Brahma Palace, the amount of detail and effort that must have gone into constructing this place is unbelievable!
