The Bodhi Path is a walkway from the pai lau (ornamental archway) to the front of the Po Lin Monastery. On both sides of the path are statues of the Twelve Divine Generals, plus 40 lotus-shaped lanterns. The Twelve Divine Generals are considered protectors in Buddhism, each responsible for guarding a two-hour section of the day. They also represent the twelve Chinese zodiac signs, indicated by the different zodiac signs on their crowns.
