These are lotus lamps (candles). Lotus is holy in Buddhism and Buddha altar is in the shape of lotus. Pilgrims light lotus lamps to show their respect to Buddha and beg his mercy. Tanzesi temple is very famous and has a history longer even than Beijing city. Many pilgrims come here to ask the help from Buddha when they have problems.

You are welcome Lizzy. I am curious about these traditions myself and culture revolution is one of my academic interests.

Sorry, it's "culture evolution", not "culture revolution", the late is a phrase with shadow for many Chinese.
