Shot at Lungshan Temple, a Chinese folk religious temple in Taipei, Taiwan.
The place in front of the main altar was always crowded. The worshippers came here almost incessantly. And all of them prayed here seriously. Seemingly, to pray in temples was not the custom fr old people. There were also young people praying. Watching people, one boy started to pray with old people. I wonder what he prayed for.
In Japan, some people say that the worshippers have to tell their address to the deities when they pray. Otherwise, the deities can not identify who pray for them and they can not be answered. I became curious about that during watching people. Is it also the same in Taiwan? And I noticed I didn't tell my address when I prayed. It could be difficult to know where I lived for the deities here because I came from overseas.
