Day Sixty-five: Nanjing

Nun selling tickets at entrance to Jimingsi Temple, Nanjing, China

The Jimingsi Temple “is a renowned Buddhist temple in Nanjing, Jiangsu, China. It is one of the most antique temples in Nanjing.[1] The temple is located near the Xuanwu Lake in central Nanjing.” I entered this temple from the adjacent Ming City Wall and this Buddhist nun was dozing at the ticket table in the cold, unheated entry way. Most visitors enter the temple from street level so I may have been her first, if not only customer. The entry fee of 10 yuan ($1.63 USD) includes 3 incense sticks to be burned at the upper temple.
