At the gate

Each temple’s gate is guarded by two scary figures, either men, lions or dragons. The statue on your right, as you enter, has its mouth open, on your left its mouth is closed. They symbolize the birth and death of all things.

La porte d’entrée de chaque temple est gardée par deux statues menaçantes, des hommes, des lions ou des dragons.
La statue de droite, quand on entre, a la bouche ouverte et celle de gauche, fermée. Elles symbolisent la naissance et la mort de toute chose.
