The Nine Emperor Gods Festival 九皇爺

The Nine Emperor Gods Festival (Chinese: 九皇爺; pinyin: Káu-ông-iâ; Cantonese: Kow Wong Yeh) is a nine-day Taoist celebration beginning on the eve of 9th lunar month of the Chinese calendar, which is observed primarily in Southeast Asian countries like Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, and also the Riau Islands.

Every year, the Nine Emperor Gods Festival is held for nine days of the Chinese 9th lunar month (Usually in early October). This is when the spirit of the Gods, which are believed to dwell in the stars descend to earth and possess the spirit mediums, putting them on a trance. Legends has it that the Gods are the sons of Dao Mo.
