Guardian lions are sacred in Buddhism, where they are seen as guardians of the Teaching (Dharma). Their “Lion’s Roar” is said to represent the voice of the Teachings of Buddha resounding in all directions. Regarded as protectors of sacred buildings and emblems of valor and energy, sculpted lions are frequently placed at the gates of temples, porticos of houses, and sometimes guard the precincts of tombs. Spotted throughout Asia, they are also positioned at the front of altars, one on each side.
