A very small Buddhist temple

 As I exited the park, I noticed a small building with a lot of flags. When I got close enough to see, the flags indicated that it was something Buddhist but the building did not look like a temple at all. It seemed more like the prebuilt sheds that you see behind farm houses. Since the door was open I decided to go in and have a look.
There was a very complex altar with a number of statues. It was obvious from the fresh flowers that at least one of the neighbors was taking good care of the contents and probably coming here every day for some kind of devotion. Since I could not figure out what sect was represented here, it is not possible to guess at what form the devotion would take, or if you could even call it a devotion.
