The master of the temple wants it to stay here for hundreds of years so the next generation can see the culture of this period time.

"The architect who designed the temple was a Manchester United fan and liked David Beckham.

So the chief abbott thought it would be a good idea if he included the footballer at the shrine where people pray.’' The statue of the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder was installed in 1998 as part of the World Cup celebrations.

Other celebrities and film characters such as Captain America, Wolverine and Pinocchio can be seen scattered around the temple's architecture.
