We woke up this morning to some rain but we were not dis-heartened.  The main activity for the day was a visit to the Foshan Ancestral Temple.  This is a Daoist Temple built originally in the Song Dynasty but it was almost totally destroyed towards the end of the Yuan Dynasty.  Fortunately, however, it was restored to it’s former glory during Ming Dynasty and dedicated to Beidi, the Northern God, who is said to have power over the waters of Guandong. The whole site covers an area of over 25,000 square metres and includes some beautiful and peaceful water gardens. 

After lunch, we took part in a range of activities that included practising basic Kung Fu and learning how to re-create the incredible clay tiles that were used to decorate the walls of the gardens.  Then it was back to the hotel for dinner and reflections.
