Today was no exception. Hundreds of school kids walked up the narrow street to the temple sweeping us up with them.
The main hall of the temple features a veranda that juts out over the sacred well and is supported by 139 wooden pillars. People buy prayer plagues to ensure happy relationships (and to pray that the veranda stays put, perhaps...) and burn incense to show gratitude and reverence to the Buddha (and to show gratitude that the veranda has stayed put for so long, perhaps...).
Lots of photographing occurs--
