XiaoZhou Village(3) The Taoist Temple Blesses The Village

30 November 2009 19 Comments

There are two Taoist Temples in (小洲村). One named TianHou Temple(天后宫) and the other named YuXu temple(玉虚宫). Since Tanka people(蜑家) depended on the fishery, The Northern Emperor and the Queen of Heaven which regard as the Protectors of Seafarers, are worshipped reverently. Joss sticks and candles are burning all the time. Let’s visit YuXu temple first.

    Yeah Jam, It’s not maintained well, same as the XiaoZhou village. What a pity!

    Coil Josses always create a mystical atmosphere, I like when the light of the sun encounter the smoke.

    Hi Heather, I think people love this kind of coil josses because it can burn for long time.

    I think that Chine is the most beautiful and amazing country in the world. Those images shows only small part of the incredible views that can be seen there. I saw China many times on TV, many, many amazing pictures.

    I like the coiled incense sticks myself. They make for an awesome visual display, whilst smouldering away. That was quite poetic, if I must say so myself. You see, these temple images inspired me!
