Urban Altar

This beautiful little altar, with Quan Âm (see Quan Âm), water, incense, and flowers, is tucked away at the base of a large, whitewashed Ficus tree on a tiny sliver of concrete between three streets in the Old Quarter of Hanoi (see Scenes from the Old Quarter). Thousands of people walk by this every day. Some stop to offer incense - or to take a picture. [NOTE: Altar is right next to Dinh Tien Hoang where the last part of this video was shot].
