Many peasants from the villages near the temple will go to this temple to burn joss sticks and pray for good weather, nice life and good health, and so on. It’s said that it is effective always. Because of this reason, more and more people come here to make a wish.
I have traveled the temple with my friends. I am not sure if it is effective for make a wish there, I know there is a good scenery there. There is a lake near the hill and the water is clear. You can boat by yourself. I didn’t row a boat as the warden was not there. I just took some photos.
