Vietnam - Vung Tau - Goddess of Mercy

This is so beautiful. It is the Goddess of Mercy. I used my faithful camera to zoom on it and it turned out so beautiful with the dark clouds behind it. The days that we were in Vietnam, the weather was a killer at 37 degrees celsius and not a sight of a single raindrops despite being the rainy season in Vietnam.

Maybe the Goddess of Mercy heard about our complain, after visiting the temple, we had a heavy rainfall for about 20 minutes after we left the temple. Maybe she bless us. :)



The statue is so tall at 18 metres.

The same thing happen in this temple, the vendors followed us and continued selling their wares to us.
