a bhuddist style temple in Jahmong
About this creation
A while ago i created a Jahmong Shrine, typical of any of the larger and smaller towns in jahmong, but a shrine is only a small teaser, a place to pray. The main center of Jahmong religion, a Sirobianesque derivative, is at the Shoamin temple near Chaohi, a port town. The design was modelled using elements from Bhuddist style japanese and chinese temples as well as some elements from shinto temples, mostly from some pictures i saw on the internet and my imagination. It consists of three main stories with a small blacksmith shop underneath for Jo Mihn, the famous blacksmith to work. The first story contains the sacred shrine, a dedication to their "Sirob-creator" as well as a bonsai tree. Upstairs is a sparring room where monks and guards can train, im particularly happy with my gong. The final floor is a small living quarters with stove, table and bedrolls. Outside, an archway leads to the temple across the bridge. Also notice the bell, rung to gain the attention of "the creator"
