Everybody was praying in fornt of each altar

Shot at Lungshan Temple, a Chinese folk religious temple in Taipei, Taiwan.

The principal image of the Lungshan Temple is Guanyin. So this temple is a Buddhist temple originally. Yet there are many kinds of deities in the precinct. The syncretization of Buddhism and other religions was formed here.

Many altars were built in the narrow precinct. And each altar enshrined different deities. Each deity has each profit. So worshippers pray in front of the expedient deity.

Walking around the precinct, I came to one of the alters. Like other alters, many people were praying seriously with closed eyes in front of it. I wondered what they were praying for. It was difficult to distinguish what kind of deity was enshrined in the altar to the tourists. However, it could be obviosity for the locals. Seemingly, they walked toward what they wanted to pray.
