39 Lighting Candles at Wat Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai, Thailand

It is traditional among believers of Theravāda Buddhism to make an offering when they visit a temple. This is often practiced by lighting a candle, but can also include burning an oil lamp or incense. It is also customary to leave flowers or food. These acts during meditation and prayer honor the Triple Gem, namely the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha.
