During I walked around the residential area, I found a small Hindu temple. It had three spires and a trident was placed on the roof of the tallest spire. It was a symbol of Shiva. So this temple was dedicated to Shiva.

Entering to the temple, the inside was dim and calm. No one came to pray. Alternatively, some men were taking a nap there. It was a hot day. The dim chamber was a nice place to relax. Besides, they could get the saving grace of the deity during sleeping.
