This is the park’s response to the reports of toilet hoarders which consumed 30 rolls of papers per day.

Visitor’s faces need to be scanned by a sensor mounted on a wall. After scanning, the machine will dispense toilet paper which about 60cm-long. The machine will now identify and remember each face.

However, the Temple has not disclosed the limit of toilet paper per person.
