Kek Lok Si claimed to be the largest Buddhist Temple in South East Asia (Malaysians love ranking), so it attracted many local devotees and visitors.
There are many praying halls and altars to let devotees give their offerings.
Besides burning joysticks and candles, one of the recent practice was to hang the blessing ribbons.
with RM1 per ribbon, devotees could get the peace of mind (at least spiritually) on various aspect of life.
With donation of RM30, your name could be written onto a roof tile and be used as part of the construction materials.
Since not all religious temples or churches received financing from the government, it was common for devotees to donate financially to the development of temples.
