MOVING CEREMONY

Staff from Dongshan Bisuan Temple in Tainan yesterday carry a Kuanyin Bodhisattva statue on a palanquin as part of the annual Lunar New Year pilgrimage to Biyun Temple in Baihe District. Designated a national folk heritage celebration, the pilgrimage pays homage to a fire in 1832 that razed Biyun Temple. The palanquin is to remain in its “home temple” until Feb. 3, the 10th day of the first month of the Lunar New Year, when the palanquin is to be returned.Jan 18, 2020
