A strange little temple

 This looks like a prefab building and probably is, but it is also a Buddhist temple. It has no grounds but it is marked by a lot of red banners. The lack of grounds is not so much of a problem because it is facing a public park (in which I was standing when I took this picture). Behind the building (you can see the bare dirt) is a samll athletic ground of some sort.
The doors were open in what I assumed to be an invitation to enter and, since the concrete floor meant that I would not have to take off my walking shoes, I went in. The altar contained a lot of statues and other items, but the thing that stood out was the number of fresh flowers which meant that some one takes good care of this Buddhist temple.
