Real Island Tour: Valley of the Temples

Sign in to follow this  


Valley of the Temples Memorial Park is a large cemetary in Temple Valley (Shrine Valley). In the game, it is quite plain, and I have not done a good job in showing how beautiful the place looks in real life.




Here is are three pictures that show the same area, each one a different week:

[2009-10-03: cloudy and rainy day]


[2009-10-10: voggy and cloudy day]


[2009-10-17: no vog but still cloudy]



The Byodo-In Temple is a replica of one in Japan. The majority of the temple is located behind the trees in this picture.







The following panorama is two pictures stiched together. I only resized and cropped the picture; I did not do any retouching. It really does look stunning doesn't it?


Next update we will drive on the H-3 (P-3) Freeway.

this is all great, i just took the time to look at all your entries, its awesome. Having lived on Oahu for a bit, brings back good memories (and some bad). But really good work, it reminds me of the real thing.

JLAAPRTM:   Heh, the building in real life has an open air interior... and the Alamo building is the closest building in the game to it.
