Shops selling Chinese prayer articles are where you can find altars, joss sticks, idols of Taoist deities, Buddha images, urns, as well as "hell money" for use as offerings to the departed. Even though you may not be a purchaser of these items, Chinese prayer article shops are a curiosity to foreign tourists in Penang.
