Charming temple for ladies who are expecting
Jan 2017 • Friends
This temple is only open on the 17th of each month. I didn't know that the first time I went and I thought it was permanently closed.
The temple is not just for ladies who are expecting, although a lot of them do come here to pray for healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. There is also an area in the back where pregnant ladies can hang handmade boobs. They write their wishes and hang them. Typically, they are wishing for good breast milk supply.
I also saw a lot of elderly people here. Some were rubbing the large stone on the right, as you enter the temple. My friend explained to me that people who have pain will rub the stone and then rub where they feel pain. If they have pain in their legs, they will rub the lower half of the stone and then rub their legs. If they have head pain, they will rub the upper part of the stone and then rub their head.
They also serve free rice and tea, which were really good.
There is parking, but this temple gets very busy since they are only open once per month.
