People Reciting Sutra In Lungshan Temple

Men reciting sutra while sitting in Lungshan Temple

Many men sat in the precinct and recited the sutra in Lungshan Temple

Shot at Lungshan Temple, a Chinese folk religious temple in Taipei, Taiwan.

This Lungshan Temple was crowded. It is one of the major tourist destinations in Taipei and many travelers come here like me. However, there are more local worshippers than travelers. Especially, this temple is a hugely popular temple for the local people. Watching many local worshippers, I realized the deities enshrined here are still active so much and this temple was not just a tourist attraction.

Most of the worshippers prayed in front of the altars. Yet there were also some worshippers sitting in the precinct. The men in this photo were that kind of people. They had a book in their hands. Watching the pages, Chinese characters were crammed on each page. I didn't understand what was written. Yet the book could be a kind of sutra.
