    Red ribbons with locks were seen all over the 碧霞祠 Azure Clouds Temple.

    Similar sightings were seen in almost every temple I have been to during this trip, so I asked the local what it was about. They told me that Chinese couples visit the temples before they get married, and the locks were used to “bind” their love together forever.
