Tiles with spirit

Sunan Gunungjati (1448–1580), one of the Wali Songo, or Nine Javanese Apostles of Islam died close to Cirebon and his tomb is still one of the remaining spiritual places on Java. The tomb site reminded me of Sufi places I visited in Pakistan where a more tolerant version of Islam is being taught.   

Cirebon, Java, Indonesia, October 2009.
