Why waste money in the name of religion?

Indians believe in splurging huge amount of money on rituals and religious ceremonies during all possible festivals. They would donate cash in temples and give gold jewels to adorn God idols but I don't understand WHY? What's the purpose behind all this? Apparently, people think they would be able to please God by these antics.

Somehow I think it is sheer wastage of money and no one is getting benefited. This money should rather be spent on the poor and the needy but most Indians don't get this simple thing right. Do you think wise to waste money in the name of religion and pleasing God?
