Pairi Daiza (2/2)
Monkeys running fee on their own little islands
At one point our group got split and we lost each other...Jan and Kabouter explored the monkey island longer than I did and Kabouter had had the pleasure of getting to feed a monkey. Bummer that I missed that.
The temple of Délices
What impressed me most at Pairi Daiza was the landscaping and the excellent replica's of buildings from different continents. The biggest is a very big hill with a hindu temple. From our experience from Bali, Jan and I thought this multi-level temple was very very "real" and I wonder if it's not in religious use. The flowers, the flags, the masks, ...it looked so real. And its size was amazing.
(I googled and I was right: it's a Balinese styled temple that they've transfered to the Belgian Hindu community and it is in active religious use).
Back to the animals
The elephants house in a gorgeous building dedicated to Ganesh, the Hindu elephant god
One of the hippo's gave us some underwater show
