Worshipping of thevillage god was observed by performing ritual service for the god who guards the village. A shrine of the mountain god, Sansindang, was built on the hill at the back of the village and a tomb of prosperity was placed in front of the village to pray for prosperity, expulsion of misfortune, and happiness.
