After praying, people put their incense in here. So that their blessings can go to the heaven with the smoke.
Onto the next temple
Next stop: Fayu Monastery
A tip on back of the ticket, “Please only burn three incense at a time, any more will have the same effect on your prayers. For the sake of our environment, please save your incenses to three per prayer.”
