Temple celebration

It was a special one day celebration at a small temple, that is now wedged between tall buildings in Tainan. Lots of bundles of fake money were being bought and burnt for good luck. The repetition of shape was a photographer's delight.
Bright glitzy pagoda style temples for sale caught our eye as we neared the temple.
This day is for those aged 16 year and they pass under this altar 3 times, boys going to the left and girls to the right.
Inside sat the Gods of learning, blackened by the incense smoke of generations.
