Nine Emperor of Gods Festival

Kow Boo Tong Temple

The nine-day celebration (somewhat similar to Thaipusam) sees devotees dressed in traditional white, carrying incense and candles, awaiting the ‘arrival’ of the nine Gods. Some worshippers in a religious fervour practice flagellation and self-mutilation, displaying their dedication by fire walking, skewing their cheeks with sharp objects (including nine-metre spears). The celebration reaches its climax on the ninth day with a procession to send the deities back home, from the Nine Emperor Gods Temple to the beachfront.
