We’re still attempting to hit all of the in-town tourists spots and Pagoda Avalokitesvara was definitely on that list. We came here a couple weeks ago on the way to Ungaran, but in the midst of getting sick I never got these photos up. So here they are!
Pagoda Avalokitesvara is part of a Buddhist monastery and the highest pagoda in all of Indonesia. It was completed in 2006 so not really a historical point of interest, but the architecture is pretty fabulous.
There were different Buddhas all around the exterior of the pagoda. I read afterwards that the Buddhas holding the little boy and girl are where families come to pray for a baby boy or girl. Glad both sexes are equally represented!
