A few months ago the Kau Ong Yah Lam Thian Kiong Temple of Ampang held a 20 Km radius Ancestor and Thanksgiving ritual. It was a beautiful ceremony over several days in which the temple fulfilled its obligations to the Lost Souls roaming about the Ampang area. The festivities were complete with a special visit by Kau Ong Yah, resplendent paper mansions and a huge burning. Here are some of my photos. This was just one way that the temple is preparing for this year’s Nine Emperor Gods Festival.
Homes for the Lost Souls – with all the luxuries!
The heavens participated one evening with a great lighting show.
Koh Ong Yah was in residence during the ceremonies
Paper Gods carried to the open lot for burning
Some familiar faces around to help out
It all made for a huge symbolic fire.
