The Front Hall is flanked by the Gate of Perfect Ease and the Gate of Liberation. The lion and elephant, both accompanied by smaller cubs, welcome guests from either side of the doors. The elephant on the right, measuring five-meter tall and six-meter long, symbolizes the conception of Prince Siddhartha who entered the womb of his mother on a white elephant. The lion on the left has the same measurements and represents the Buddha’s roar of teachings. Inside, visitors can borrow wheelchairs and baby-strollers from the Information Desk. There are restaurants and a buffet, all so visitors can rest their feet or have something to eat.
“Lijing da ting” in Chinese means “Reverence Hall.” The welcome center not only al-lows visitors to settle in by accommodating their physical needs, it also allows visitors to pre-pare their mind before they start the journey in the Buddha Museum.
