Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Buddhist Temple
welcoming us the potbellied
Prosperity Buddha

Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Buddhist Temple
tickling us from the balconey
the potbellied prosperity buddha

Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Buddhist Temple
the myriad pillars play out
the temple's grandeur

Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Buddhist Temple
the myriad pillars evoke
the temple's grandeur
