Buddhist temples typically have multiple levels. These pictures come from the second level.
The steps to the second level.

The man on the left with the incense seems oblivious to the smoke.
People also bring gifts of food for the Buddha.
The temple on New Year's Day is like Chinese life everywhere—crowded.
This is one of my favorite pictures of the temple.
Down at the bottom of this picture is the place where the worshipers give money to the temple.
Here is a rock with ancient inscriptions on it.
