I've been visiting this temple since I was a child with my grandparents, and my parents. On a recent trip back home, I made it a point to visit it with my parents. Built in 1645, it is decorated with mythical creatures, deities, animals and symbols. The altars have changed little over the years. What attracts me the most are the beams, sculptures, carvings and exquisite tiles. The figurines that decorate the roof are just so amazing.
During this visit, I notice there are caretakers/helpers who clear away the incense before they're burnt even half-way. I've no idea why they have to do this, is it to keep the tables clean? This temple used to have a nice, soothing scent of incense burning - of course during celebrations this offering can get too smoky - this time I went on a weekday and there were less than 20 incense burning yet the helpers were clearing them away. Now, there's not even a hint of that scent. Perhaps the current caretakers have forgotten the meaning behind burning incense?
The lavatories in this beautiful temple is in need of improvement.
