China's most well-known religion is Buddhism. Various estimates suggest that 20% of the Chinese population practice some variant of Buddhism. Temples can be found in all cities. In the city of Hangzhou, the Lingyin temple is famous for its rock carvings of various Buddhas. Even at the beginning of the Chinese winter (November) the temples are full of Chinese tourists and local worshipers. Ceremonies include the burning of incense with prayers directed to various statues or in all four directions of the compass. When Buddha statues are in buildings, photography is forbidden, but photos can be taken from the outside. Incense is sold at the temple, with the average bundle costing around two Canadian dollars.
