Car Park Buddha

So there I was, happy after a day's traipsing around about the place (mainly window shopping) when suddenly I walked through some sort of transporter. It churned me out in some Asian place of worship, or so I initially thought. But no, I had in fact just walked into the car park of a shopping centre. But there was a very ornate shrine to Buddha himself in front of the mother and baby section.

Whilst I initially thought it strange, I then came to think about the grotto idea in Ireland. I know they're not usually found in shopping centre car parks, but I'm sure other cultures must find it strange to see Our Lady perched in random areas of the countryside...
