Many locals came to this temple and relaxed in the shade

It was prohibited to wear footwear in the precinct. All classes, rich, poor, had to go barefoot here. And the ground was scalding hot because it was exposed to the strong sun. So I walked in the shade as possible as I could. Yet sometimes I had to walk on the hot ground. After walking, I almost got burned.

On the other hand, the locals walked smoothly. I thought their thicknesses of volar skin were different from mine.
