The first thing that hit my attention in this temple was actually the crowd of young people praying there. It was an unusual view for me as I am used to see mainly old people praying in churches, but also in other temples of other religions I visited I never noticed so many young people.
This temple is for worshiping Guanshiyin Budda and other divine spirits.
As soon as you enter there is a huge table where people put food and wait it to be blessed before getting it back and I guess eating it.
