what is the reason for scooping water at temples and shrines?
i don't know the answer to your question...
all i can say is that i feel relaxed just watching these water-scooping and water-dropping mechanisms.

Nice shot pal, I guess, its suppose to be some kind of holy water, which either people drink or put on their heads as blessing.

I know at some of the temples it's to "purify" yourself before you go in. People rinse off their hands, sometimes their feet. You might even see someone rinsing out their mouth. Without seeing a wider shot it's hard to say if that's what this fountain is for.

scooping water is for purifying various parts of the body prior to entering a sacred area
