  • Hi Jean,

    Just heavy raining 10 minutes after I shoot this photo.

    The reddish architectures in front of the houses are shrines of Gods, it is a little space for Taoists worshipping the God of Sky , this is one of the characteristic of Chinese houses too.

    Some of my old photos are showing these little shrine too.

    Old Photo 1 :, Chinese houses at Ampang Village, the reddish shrine (normally built 3~5 feets off the ground) is use for worshipping God of Sky, and the yellowish shrine (directly built on the land) is for worship the Gods of Land/ Earth.

    Old Photo 2 : In front of a shop owned by Chinese, the little red shrine built directly on the land is for worshipping the Gods of Land.

    Thanks for viewing.
