The Nine Emperor Gods are no longer popular in the southern provinces of China but there are still a small group of people who pay homage to three deities in Penang. During the annual Nine Emperor Gods festival which falls on the eve of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar, the temple will be at its busiest. It is said during this day; the spirits of the Nine Emperor Gods descend from the stars to Earth. The celebration lasts for nine days, and during these time, the devotees are dressed in white, carrying incense and candles while waiting for the nine Gods.
