While out shooting for my March Changing Season’s post, I spent some time at the Nepalese Pagoda. This was the Kingdom of Nepal’s contribution to World Expo 88 which was held here in Brisbane. The Pagoda has become a permanent fixture within the lush rainforest walk at Southbank. According to visitbrisbane “it features 80 tonnes of hand-carved Nepalese timber and took more than 160 Nepalese families two years to build. It is also one of only three Nepalese peace pagodas in the world to be located outside of Nepal.”

I’m checking these photos in to Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic. They were all taken with my Olympus OMD EM5 camera, with either of my 17mm (35mm equivalent) or 60mm (120mm equivalent) lenses. This is so much fun πŸ™‚

The Nepalese Pagoda at Brisbane Southbank truly is a beautiful temple and a lovely place to spend some time.

  1. I love visiting Southbank, and the Nepalese Pagoda is always worth a second look. It amazing to see the combination of Indian and East Asian architectural and artistic influences. Thanks for sharing!
