Buddhism, Watt Munisotaram
This temple was built from 2002 to 2007 and cost 1.58 million dollars. It has two stories: the top story is for meditation and chanting for monks and the bottom story is for celebrations. Lining the top of the walls in the top story are 26 colored panels depicting Buddha’s life. The bottom story has places for offerings and instruments, which children practice. On many Sundays this bottom story is filled with music and children running around. The top story is often empty.
