“紅絲帶和鎖” (红丝带和锁 Red Ribbons + Locks) / 山東省泰山 Mount Tai, Shandong Province 山东省泰山 / 中國旅遊 中国旅游 China Tourism / SML.20121011.7D.09549

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.
