Many worshippers were praying seriously in Lungshan Temple

I walked around the grounds of Lungshan Temple and returned to the entrance area again. There was a large table set up just inside the entrance, with many offerings on top. And in front of it stood a large number of worshippers. Some were simply praying with their hands together, and others were praying with incense sticks. As if praying wasn't enough, I saw some people doing Poe divination. Anyway, they were praying seriously. Watching them, it is clear that Lungshan Temple has gained widespread faith from the people.

There are several altars on the temple grounds, each with a table for placing offerings. However, this table near the entrance seemed to be the main one. There are many different deities in Lungshan Temple, but perhaps if you pray here, you are praying to all the deities in the temple grounds together. I don't know if that's the right way to think about it or not. But it's true that people who think so arrogantly cannot pray as seriously as the people in the photo.
