Ban Hin Kiong Temple by @jejalan

The name Ban Hin Kiong means a holy palace with abundant blessing. Ban Hing Kiong is the oldest temple in Manado which established since 1819. This temple is a holy place for tri dharma (the religion refers to Buddhism, Confusius, and Taoism).

This marine park in the north of Sulawesi island is an absolute treat to visit. Nowadays Snorkelers from all over the world are traveling to Bunaken to see the underwater. Some are plain beautiful and photogenic, and others are interesting biologically yet totally unexpected for this part of the world.
