The woman was praying seriously with a plastic bag in Lungshan Temple

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

This Lungshan Temple is the oldest temple in Taipei city. And it has been worshipped by local people. Its precinct is always crowded with the worshippers who want to receive the blessing by the deities enshrined in this temple.

The woman wearing a red shirt in this photo was one of the worshippers. Like other people, she joined her hands in front of the main hall and was praying seriously. Looking closer, she had a plastic bag in her hand. She seemed to come here to pray on the sidelines of the shopping.

It is said that local people visit temples casually when they are worried about their job, love affairs, health, and others. To pray in temples could be integrated into local people's everyday life.
