Qizi Bay: Scenery at Dajiao (1)
Coming up from the beach, a picturesque rocky scene meets the eyes. This is the start of Dajiao (大角 Dàjiǎo) or 'Large Point'. The photos below introduce some of the beauty and grandeur of Dajiao. (Note: These photos are a mixture of shots taken on the afternoon of one day and the morning of the next.)
The beginning looks peaceful and picturesque (afternoon).
Next we come to the shrine to Guanyin (观音 Guānyīn). Many fisherman of Hainan turn to the Boddhisattva Guanyin (Avalokitesvara) to protect themselves from the whims of the deep. Several rocks at the top of the cliff were said to resemble Guanyin, and a small shrine had been built to worship the goddess. A second shrine was found further down.
Both these rocks are said to resemble Guanyin. Only the one on the right really looks like a human face, but I find it hard to connect with any depiction of Guanyin I've ever seen...
There's more to Dajiao yet!
