1. Hougang Dou Mu Gong 后港斗母宫

Hougang Dou Mu Gong 后港斗母宫 is probably one of the oldest temple dedicated to Dou Mu 斗母and Jiu Wang Da Di 九王大帝(Nine Emperor Gods). Situated at Upper Serangoon Road, close to the Yio Chu Kang Road, this temple comes "alive" from the first to the ninth day of the 9th Lunar Month each year.

Traditionally, this temple would go to Kuala Lumpur to receive the "Xiang Huo" and to Serangoon River to receive the Nine Emperor Gods. For devotees involved in the events of these Nine Days, they have to go on vegetarian diet.

Hi kyeixhin, there's more to this. (^^) Will add as I gather more information. Ah, you should go there next 9th Lunar Month (eve of 1st and 9th night) and watch traditions come alive.
