Pekan Ampang celebrates Vegetarian Festival

This is the annual parade of the Nine Emperor Gods in Pekan Ampang.

Led by dragons, lions, lighted floats and mediums the parade weave through the narrow streets of Ampang.

This is normally held on the 2nd day of the festival as to welcome the deity Yuan Shui, whose role is to administer the festival.

Devotees by the tens of thousands flocked this small sleepy village to celebrate the nine-day vegetarian festival.

Meanwhile back at the temple, more devotees have assembled, and are awaiting the return of the Gods to pray for longevity, health and good fortune.
