Maui Places of Peace and Power

You can find this ferocious protector at a small roadside park in Keokea called the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park. The view from this park is spectacular, and the energy is fantastic--a place of peace.

"Who was Sun Yat-Sen? Dr. Sun Yat-Sen (1866-1925) was a revolutionary in China and a political leader who was often referred to as the “father of modern China.” Yat-Sen served as the first provisional president when the Republic of China was founded in 1912, after the overthrow of the Qing Dynasty a year before. The ‘Ulupalakua ranch donated the land for the park in 1989. Today the park features a bronze statue of Yat-Sen along with a few other memorial statues."

You have a wonderful site, I truly enjoy all of your different blogs.
This statue reminds me very much of the Chinese Foo Dogs. I have a couple of Foo Dogs sitting on my dresser. Of course they are a lot smaller than this guardian. ;-)

I hope you won't mind, but I would like to put a link to your blog on mine.

We visited Sun Yat Sen Park after we left the winery. I was saddened at some of the trash that had been left there, so I grabbed a bag from the rental car and picked up what I found. A wonderful memorial like that should never be defiled.
