Kathu Chinese Shrine

This shrine was visited because I was walking along the street during the Kathu street Festival.

I entered it because there was a film on an old cine-projector playing a martial arts movie outside and inside there were a plethora of people getting ready to take part in a procession.

The temple is enormous and there are many things to see - but please remember it is a place of cultural worship so please respect it - take off your shoes if you enter.

But my mind was on what I saw previously - people preparing themselves for the Vegetarian Festival - piercing with no wimpering and only a little blood - I am excited to see it again this year.
