Shot at Da Tian Hou Gong, a shrine dedicated to Mazu in Tainan, Taiwan.

Shortly after I left a temple dedicated to Guan Yu, I arrived at another temple which was dedicated to Mazu, a Chinese sea goddess. I realized there were many temples in the heart of Tainan. The locals were religious. It was not enough if there was the only God. And they visited different temples for each aim. If they wanted to be be lucky in money, they visited any temples dedicated to Guan Yu. If they wanted to make life at sea safer, they visited any temples dedicated to Mazu.

Entering into the hall, I found some worshipers inside. It is said this temple is one of the popular temples on this island. The woman in this photo was one of the worshipers. She had some incense sticks in her hands. And she was just praying with a serious look.
