Nine Emperor Gods Festival @ Leong Nam Temple

In a vibrant month of the year, Leong Nam Temple in Sengkang joyously observes The Nine Emperor Gods Festival, a nine-day Taoist celebration that kicks off on the eve of the ninth lunar month.

This festivity is especially prevalent in Southeast Asian countries, including Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Thailand, particularly among the Peranakans rather than the entire Overseas Chinese community. The event is marked by a multitude of activities, including captivating dragon and lion dances, as well as the ceremonial rocking of the nine sedan chairs.
