Red Door Of Hsing Tian Kong

red door of Hsing Tian Kong

The door was painted in vivid red

Shot at Hsing Tian Kong in Taipei, Taiwan.

This temple is dedicated to Guan Yu, the patron god of businessmen. Anybody and everybody want to become rich when feasible. The temple is crowded every day. And it is one of the major tourist attractions in Taipei.

The door in this photo was tightly closed. It was painted in vivid red and decorated with many yellow protruding objects as if it protected from the invasion. A name tablet on which the name of this temple was written in Chinese characters was hung above the door. The patron stationed on the other side of this door. Yet anyone could go through this door. The worshipers should enter other doors. It might be dread to enter through the front door.
