Useful info for going to Temples (Jiao Bei)

This is Jiao Bei.
These two moon shaped objects you can find at any temple in Taiwan. Let me tell you how it works. You ask the gods a question. Then you throw these two pieces at the floor. If both of them land facing both up or both down, the answer is no. If they land facing different sides, then it's a yes. If you get a yes, you can then go and pick a stick out of a bin. The sticks have numbers on them. After getting the number you must go back to the jiao bei and do jhi jiao ( the action of throwing the jiao bei on the floor) again and ask the gods if this is the number you're meant to have. If they answer yes, you match your number to your fortune which should answer your question further. If you get a no, you must start all over. 


  1. Wow, this is interesting! I like learning about the Temples and rituals there.
