2013-Muar 9 Emperor Festival / 麻坡斗母宮九皇大帝誕

Location: Muar, Johor / 麻坡, 柔佛.

Photos taken on 2013 during the street parade of the Nine Emperor God / Jiu Huang Da Di / 九皇大帝 festival held by Dou Mu Gong / 斗母宮 in Muar, Johor. This time around, the celebration was grander than my previous trip. The street parade is held on the 8th day of the festival and many other temple from around Muar would participated in this event. Many of these temple brought along their own Hua Che / 花車. A Hua Che is usually a car or truck that is decorated beautifully for the statue/deity to parade the street. Other participance carries their temple statue on a palanquin / 轎. Dragon and Lion dances are also seen parading along. Definitely an great event.
