At a busy intersection in downtown Bangkok is a Four Faced Buddha. There are several throughout Thailand, but this is the best known one. As you can see it is a busy outdoor shrine.
The dancers are a money-raising method for this temple - the women dance in exchange for a donation.
Worshippers buy a dozen incense sticks, a candle, and four garlands. Then they pray to each of the four faces, leaving a garland and three incense sticks in a tray of ashes.
It is considered good luck to release fish or birds, and just outside was a vendor selling cages of small birds. My mom bought a cage and we took turns releasing the birds, who I'm sure were very happy to be free again!
