Sites of Sri Lanka

2. Starting in northeast China, we visit Harbin. Harbin has long, frigid winters which help with its famous festival. Can you name the annual Harbin festival?

From Quiz Famous Chinese Landmarks

Answer: International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival

The festival generally occurs throughout January and February, although some attractions may be built as early as December. One section includes buildings constructed from blocks of ice carved from the Songhau River. It can be quite cold, with an average winter temperature of -16.8°C, so pack your down jacket and thick boots! The festival began in 1963, initially solely with Chinese participants, but as the name implies it has expanded to include international competitors. The event is popular, with about 18 million visitors. Activities include ice lantern shows, fireworks, skiing, and even swimming in the Songhau! All of the incorrect choices are actual events elsewhere in the world - Winterlude is in Ottawa, Frozen Dead Guys Day is in Colorado, and there are many Winter Lantern festivals. Player pusdoc prefers to stay inside with a warm beverage but provided this question for Phoenix Rising's Red Crew.

One faces inland while the other two confront the South China Sea. This represents the goddess providing her protection to the inhabitants of China on the one hand and the rest of the world on the other. On each aspect the Guanyin is holding a different object, a sutra, a set of prayer beads and a lotus. The aspect with the sutra (held in the left hand) makes the gesture of a Vitarka mudra with the right hand. This mudra has the tips of the index finger and thumb joined together while the other three fingers are pointed straight out. It represents the discussion and the spreading of the teachings of Buddhism.

From Quiz Famous Chinese Landmarks

Answer: Japan

The massacre is estimated to have killed upwards of 300,000 people; it occurred in December of 1937 when Japan occupied the city during World War II. The museum was built in 1985 and enlarged a decade later at the site of a mass burial called the "pit of 10,000 corpses." The memorial is often crowded, admission is free, but you will need valid identification such as your passport. It is within walking distance of the Yunjinlu metro station and several bus lines stop there. The site includes outdoor exhibits, skeletal remains, and historical documents - videos illustrate the history, and a memorial wall lists the names of the victims. The architecture reflects the solemn nature of the memorial. Of note, a Japanese-Chinese friendship group donated many of the items and provided a garden. Western witnesses to the tragedy who testified at the war crimes tribunal are also remembered. Player pusdoc wrote this question for Phoenix Rising's Red Crew; she presumes that experiencing this memorial would be similar to Holocaust memorial visits - sobering but important.
