During the Chinese New Year celebrations, many of the believers paid homage at the temples or the local shrines.

I took this opportunity to visit and learn more about the many rituals and the idols for the worshipers. The belief is that by when the offerings are burnt it will ascend up to the heavens for them to enjoy.

Generals form the famous historical novel “Three Kingdoms” guarding the gates.

An old shrine untouched while new buildings have sprung up around it.

Buddha’s on a hilltop, I guess they each have their own specializations?

Burning incense with their wishes at the top. Each incense can burn for about 10 days.

Everyone under the same roof.

Fruits and offerings for the crew’s safety.
