|Hall of the 100 Buddhas|
In Chinatown, we found something else to do: look at the shrine containing one of the Buddha's teeth. It's a really beautiful, amazing place, where they've got the tooth well wrapped up in an elaborate setting. If you go through the hall of the hundred (or is it thousand?) Buddhas, up to the fourth (or is it third?) floor into the room of eight (or is it twelve?) guardians, you can approach a glass window containing a large ornamented gold reliquary. Somewhere in there, several metres from where you are standing, there is, allegedly, a human tooth. You can see a close up on an LCD screen in the room. Actually, I really like this place. If I had to choose a religion, it would be Buddhism. When we went back downstairs, people were chanting the hundred names of Buddha in an intoxicating kind of way, so we walked around the gallery above them, looking at the exhibition of famous monks and the statuettes like this one which made my day.

It looks just like the bikes at Clumber Park.
