Even though I'm not Buddhist, I find Buddhist Temples to be quite peaceful. There just seems to be such an emphasis on peace and tranquility, both in yourself and with nature. Like this little bamboo spigot flowing into the small basin. I can almost hear the sounds of the temple - the reverberations of a ringing bell, the wind rustling through the leaves, the beating of a wooden drum.
I find that kind of peace quite relaxing, which I guess is the point. Sometimes I wonder what it'd be like to be a Buddhist monk, but then I remember that they're vegetarians, and there's no way that'd fly with me.
