In front of the prayer hall, there is a courtyard. The sacred trees are planted symmetrically in the courtyard. And the place for the wooden plaque is built on the observers' right. Many wooden votive tablets are hung there. The wishes are written on each tablet. So the wish lists offered to the deities can be very long.

When I walked around, I found a young man wearing a cap. He was just writing a wooden plaque. The wishes were added to the list one thing after the next. I thought the deities were busy to fulfill the wishes.
