The worshipper was just praying in Wenchanggong

Walking around the park, I found a temple by the roadside. Its facade was Chinese style discernibly. It was decorative and many lanterns were hung in front of it. I was attracted by the architecture and entered.

It was Wenchanggong, which is enshrined a deity of scholarship called Wenchang Wang. Although it is said this temple is very popular in Chinese culture, the precinct was deserted when I came to this temple. It was hard to imagine that this temple gathered the local people's faith. Maybe it was not the school examination season in Taiwan.

Meanwhile, a worshipper came to the incense burner. She had long incense sticks in her hands. Watching her, she started to pray alone. She might be about to take an unseasonable examination.
