you go sight-seeing abroad, you’ll visit a lot of temples.  I found that many temples in Mongolia (and Asia in general) have these spin wheels.  Words like ‘Happiness’, ‘Prosperity’ and ‘Longevity’ are written on them in sanskrit. It is believed that if you spin them, the spinner will receive good-luck.

 

Since I was in a foreign country traveling alone, I needed all the good fortune I could get.
