Scaramouchine and the Monastery

While touring ancient ruined temples, Scaramouchine had the opportunity to view a working monastary.   Go Go was a relatively devout Buddhist but almost never went to the temple, instead he and his family would bring food for the Monks in return for a blessing.

The Monastery had an underground cavern where the Monks could sleep and live, likely a cooler place when the weather was very hot or wet
