Monk Hua Chi is pictured outside a monastery near Tongren
Monk Hua Chi is pictured outside a monastery near Tongren, Qinghai province February 25, 2009, where he left footprints in the wood by praying at the same spot for decades. Hua Chi, who believes he is around 70 years old, has prayed at the same spot so many times that perfect footprints remain on the wooden doorstep. The monk and doctor of traditional medicine has been coming to the small temple in the monastery town of Tongren in China's western Qinghai province for nearly twenty years to perform a strict personal ritual. Every day, before sunrise, Hua arrives at the temple steps, placing his feet onto his footprints as he bends down to kowtow a few thousand times before walking around the temple.
