It makes me wonder about the traditional method of preparing rice in Asian countries, in the pre-rice-cooker days. How was it done?

I remember my grandma cooked rice in the boiling water(lots water), and then she drain out the excess water (thick and soupy) at the end. then you have rice and rice soup. She always asked us to drink soup first before start the dish. I missed that. I really miss her.

Do you know what temples mean? If you do, who invented them? Please tell me it's Chinese.
