Going by the number of places of worship, Singaporeans have to be the most religious people on this planet.
It's population is well represented by people from all faiths and there are formal religious institutions and places of worship belonging not just to every traditional established religion but to all sub and sub sub denominations that have emerged from them.
Over and above all of these, one also comes across literally thousands of makeshift "prayer alters" at street corners, along corridors, walkways etc. Pretty much whereever there is any vacant space. Most homes have prayer alters.
It's almost amusing to see every imaginable deitiy placed in some of these makeshift street alters.
This is all very interesting, esp for a society that's known primarily for its obsession with wealth accumulation.
Could it be a case of more gods means more money?
