Century Golden Resources after completing the official morning, lunch will be less than the back of equipment to direct flow along the Lancang River along the direction of camera. Century Golden Resources Xishuangbanna positive at this time construction, completed in less than riverside parks to nowhere when the only back to the city from the site. 

Encounter a Dai village between the lines plug, purely by chance I found this in the village temple, in porphyrin post to lead a small enthusiastic allowed to enter the temple under the shooting. 

Dai is a gentle and simple, good-natured, advocating the virtues, hospitable people. Due to the long living in hot climate, abundant rainfall, fertile soil, subtropical evergreen environment, housing a unique "dry-column" bamboo structure. Multi-purpose building houses a number of thick wooden pillars supporting a platform, roof slope barricaded and covered with thatch. Walls around the fence, not only breathable, heat, moisture, and bright, comfortable and beautiful. 

Monastery buildings are taking these characteristics, a "dry-column" and "palace-style" mode. "Dry-column", mainly in monasteries around the village. Dai ardent believer in Theravada Buddhism, almost every large village has a temple (known as stout room); small village three or four are together build a temple. According to incomplete statistics, the liberation of Yunnan Dehong, Xishuangbanna, about the size of the temple more than 1800 seats. Temple built in the landscape are usually quiet, easy activities of the Department. For the admission of more faithful homage, tall hall more spacious than the houses. 

Today, they encountered a "palace-style" temple. "Palace-style" temple more than in the county, generally Sengfang, drum room, hall, wall, gate several parts. Temple hall is the core of the nave and side buildings constitute, mostly eaves style. Laying the ground floor hall, only the Sakyamuni Buddha on lotus throne, nothing to be God. There are other specific areas to be God's temple. Sakyamuni Buddha head hanging canopy, light incense for the table decorations, flowers, paper horses, like paper. Offerings commonly used sticky rice, bananas, pineapple, mango, Cake, sand cakes, eggs. Desk and listen to the faithful kneeling by the Department. Monks in the table or hand-written by the flip Bayeux by publicly saying. There are countless of hall four wall banner, painted on the faithful offer the Buddha, also like the Baoshu, pagodas, peacocks, elephants, God, horses, oxen image. Dai faithful pray for sustenance Kyrgyzstan to seek happiness, good of the requirements of free hard desire. Basilica of the use of brick, roof tiles on the roof decorated with peacocks, lions, elephants. Pagoda built round the central ridge, gold powder coated tower, spire a hard thin, directed at the blue sky. Foil construction with shag, pagoda, the drum room, quit Church, located in the hall on both sides. Dianwai a flat field, for believers in Dan Buddha, closed section, open the door when the Songkran festival and rally, dance; or put increased heap offerings purposes. In short, the dry-column mode with the palatial buildings of bamboo are borrowing from traditional folk form. Dai hot climate, a lot of bamboo. Long bamboo is often used for thick materials, marble floor, a bottom-style housing, cattle pig and chicken off the bottom, stacking tools, live above the people. This small size, ventilation, a comfortable and pleasant characteristics has become the Dai temple architectural style. 

To see the arch to the entrance to the village we learned that this village is named Man Long Marina Village.
