Fireworks temple

As a child I would spend Chinese New Year's at my aunt's house which was situated directly opposite the temple. The neighbourhood kids and me would run across the street and play firecrackers there because there was no space to do so otherwise. At first we were left to do our own thing but then the caretakers of the temple warned us not to disturb the gods living there.

We were innocent and didn't know better so the caretaker took us in for a free tour which lasted about 15 minutes. We left with a new appreciation for the temple and even as I pass by the place now, I would remember the smile of the caretaker who took the time to tell us what his beliefs were and what the temple stood for. It was a beautiful experience of pretty statues and spiritual stories.
