Two women were resting in front of an alter in Wat Mangkon Kamalawat

In the course of walking, I came to a Buddhist temple called Wat Mangkon Kamalawat. The area where this temple stood was located in Chinatown of Bangkok. So this temple was built in the style of Chinese architectural style and it is said this temple is the most important Chinese Buddhist temple in Bangkok. Although I didn't know the details, the style was evidently different from other major Buddhist temples, for example, Wat Phra Kaew.

Chinese characters were written in spots. Like temples in Taiwan and Vietnam, there were many altars in this temple. The photo was one of them. A table and chairs were placed in front of the altar. And two women were resting there while chatting. They didn't look at the statues of deities enshrined on the altar. They seemed not to be interested in the deities.
