The deoty was surrounded by the lights in the altar

Shot at Wenchanggong in Taipei, Taiwan.

There are also some other altars dedicated to Wenchang Wang in this temple. According to the information, this temple enshrines 5 deities. And the statues of deity are stationed in each altar. The statue in this photo is one of them.

The statue with a stern face is in the center of the altar. And an incense burner is placed just in front of it. On both sides of the incense burner, there are many small lights on the wall. The wall is occupied by them and they are lambent silently. These small lights are offering by the worshippers. The name of the worshipper is written in each light. In doing so, it is said that the family member of the worshipper also received the answer.

Anyway, the wall is ablaze with lights. In an earlier time, these lights were made by candles. The deity enshrined in the altar could be too hot at that time.
