It’s one of those instances where the GPS leads you to an accidental discovery by insisting you make a somewhat questionable right turn.

It is a road I have driven a few times before from Houston to Alvin, and then back. I have noticed it’s also route that I have to take when I forget how to get to a location in Alvin, or how to get back to Houston.

It is not a particularly scenic route. One lane traffic designated CR 129. Some warehouses, industrial buildings and a very interesting landscape or architecture building that has some sort of metal sculpture on the roof. (Which I will have to remember to take a closer look next time).

Then I noticed a rock sign for a Buddhist temple. And then this large statue of a meditating buddha right next to it. Needless to say, it got my attention. I only had time to take some pictures of the statue. Will try to find time in the very near future to see about the temple.
