Beira Lake

Geoffrey Bawa's Seema Malaka Temple, Colombo, Sri Lanka - Nikon D700 + Carl Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 ZF.2 + f/5.6 + 1/640s + ISO-400


"The Seema Malaka is the only modern Buddhist temple in Sri Lanka to have been built to a non-traditional design. It floats on Colombo's Beira Lake and is used as an inauguration hall for the monks of the nearby Gangaramia Temple." in ROBSON, David, "Geoffrey Bawa: the complete works" - Thames and Hudson, 2002
