Nine Emperor Gods Temple

Nine Emperor Gods Temple, Ampang

Info: The temple in Ampang comes to life, once a year, during the Nine Emperor Gods Festival. For nine days, the temple and its surroundings take on a carnival-like atmosphere with a traditional opera, street processions, dragon dances and giant joss sticks. Panhandlers and all sorts of stalls invade the temple grounds, resulting in a fascinating riot of colours, sounds and smells. The official romanised spelling ‘Kau Ong Yah’ (Hokkien) is also referred to as ‘Kow Wong Yeh’ (Cantonese). Nine Emperor Gods Festival dates can be found in MyCen Calendar.
