  Woshippers asking for prayers wish
by Audrey118

As we were tavelling there during the CHinese New Year, the temple was ultra crowded. You must remeber that Ayutthaya has a very high Chinese descendent population.

Here shows a picture of some locals and also some tourist shaking a container containing some sticks. You bow your head and shake the container, offering prayers for your wish, and one stick will fall out. The sticks are numbered, and you can get the interpretation of your prayers from numbered sheets available at the entrace. We also saw people taking holy water from a huge bucket.
