Temple of the Forest Beneath the Clouds

The altar inside the Temple of the Forest Beneath the Clouds is spectacular.

There are three ornately carved wooden canopies containing images of gods along the back wall opposite the spirit screens, and in front of them is an altar holding candles, incense sticks, oracle fortune sticks and an oracle book, wine cups, and pictures of Immortals painted on glass. Before this altar is a small wooden table on which food offerings are placed and a stone urn used to offer alcoholic beverages, usually whiskey.
