Nagasaki Confucius Shrine
This Shrine dedicated to the Chinese philosopher Confucius was built in 1893. Those stone status which stands firmly outside the shrine are the followers of Confucius. Actually the building was severely damaged by atomic bomb on August 9, 1945. It was then restored and opened to the public in September 1967.
I was there during the Lantern festival in Nagasaki last year (2011). The Lantern Festival is one of the biggest yearly events in Nagasaki where Chinatown are brightly decorated with red lanterns and some very beautifully designed lanterns. If you’re planning to visit Nagasaki, I highly recommend you to go there during the Lantern festival, usually around Chinese New Year. The dates varies each year so make sure that you check their website first before making your holiday plans.
If you are interested to see more of the shrine, you can have a look at this youtube video here

Erawan shrine is located near Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel, near the Bangkok Skytrain’s Chitlom Station.
This place is always crowded with worshipers who come to pray to the four-faced Hindu god Brahma,
named Than Tao Mahaprom.
The statue is surrounded by offerings of flowers, incense and candles.
These dancers are hired by worshipers to make dance performances
in return for seeing their prayers answered.
Sorry for abandoning this blog for such a long time.
