    Visitors to the 13 Tombs of the Ming Dynasty these days seem more interested in seeing the stacks of money left there as offerings to the dead, praying for blessings.

    This photo shows mostly 1 and 5 yuan notes scattered over parts of the UNESCO World Heritage site because staff won’t touch the offerings except to pile them up.

    And most thieves would be put off at the thought of taking money from ghosts!
