Many Poe objects were put on the tray

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

Walking around the precinct of Lungshan Temple, I found a tray filled with the small crescent-shaped objects. These objects were Poe objects used for Poe divination. The worshippers do fortune-telling with them.

It seems to be popular here. I often saw people doing that not only in this temple but also in other temples in Taiwan. Those who want to seek the divination pick up Poe objects and throw down them on the ground. And they can get their divination by the position of the objects.

Seemingly, Taiwanese people are much prayerful than Japanese people. Every temple is crowded with worshippers. Yet they seemed not to satisfied only by praying for deities. They make a wish to deities and want to know the result at the same time. They might be hotheaded.
