The 4th graders asked some questions about the Buddhist Temple we visited on Wednesday. It was originally built in the year 863 and is made mostly of brick and wood. It has lots of statutes and beautiful gardens. The people don't worship like we would in our church with songs, Bible readings, sermons and prayers. Usually the would just light and incense stick and offer quick prayers for their ancestors.
In regards to your village question: the oldest village we visited was about 120 years old and the biggest had a population of about 400.
