Incinerator And Two Men

incinerator and two men

Two men stood in front of an incinerator

Shot at Kaiji Wumiao, a mausoleum dedicated to Guan Yu in Tainan, Taiwan.

In a corner of the narrow precinct, an incinerator was installed. It was common to see such incinerator when I came to any temple in Taiwan. Two men were working there. And I could see the fire inside of the incinerator.

They kept feeding many yellow papers to the flames. The papers were Joss paper, also known as ghost money. By being burnt, people offered the money to their ancestors who were in another world. Money was necessary also beyond the grave. Both the worlds were moneyed societies.
