During I walked around the narrow lanes in Tainan, I found another mausoleum dedicated to Guan Yu. I visited the same kind of mausoleum just before. Some mausoleums dedicated to the same deity stood in close quarters. Guan Yu was very popular with the locals. At the same time, I worried whether the locals quarreled about the orthodoxy. Maybe, the worshipers were segregated from each other.

When I looked into the mausoleum, I found some incense sticks were stuck in the incense burner. And two women were just praying on the other side of the burner.
