What's beyond this wall?

These beautiful embossed tiles lined the outer wall of the courtyard of Wak Hai Cheng Bio Temple, Singapore (for more information on this temple - refer to my previous shot in this series). It's so sad that we don't build houses anymore using such intricately detailed tiles.


This particular temple is unusual in that it is sited right in the midst of Singapore's Central Business District - sitting in its little courtyard with hazy incense smoke rising up to the skies surrounded by concrete skyscrapers!
