Opening of the Kun Iam Storehouse

Dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy, Kun Iam Tong Temple is not only one of the three oldest temples in Macao but also one of the few to host an overnight vigil. This year, the annual "Open Treasures" obeisance - derived from southern Chinese folklore but with a strong local flavour - falls on March 13th. Believers pray from 11:00pm on March 12th until the next morning in order to "return money", "borrow money" and beseech protection. During that time incense pervades the air and pinwheel stalls pop up outside the temple.
