Images or statues of the deity are usually seen in shops or residences around the country. In addition, numerous temples have been established to honour Tou Tei. The Tou Tei Temple in Patane is the most famous of these, but the Fok Tak Chi Temple in Horta da Mitra is the best place to observe the festivities of this event. Festival celebrations occur in other Tou Tei temples around town, including those in Sam Pa Mun.

It remains unknown exactly when the historic Fok Tak Chi Temple was constructed, though experts agree that it was around the time of the Qing Dynasty. Many important folk Chinese celebrations occur here, including the Feast of the God Tou Tei, where Chinese opera performances will occur.

In addition, worshippers often begin the festivities from their homes, praying and then heading to the various temples for the lion dances and parades. They also use this opportunity to pray for a bigger harvest.

There are many delicious foods available for worshippers to try at this time. These include whole roasted pig and many other traditional delicacies. If you have never watched a Chinese opera, this is a fantastic time to do so. Other festival attractions include vibrant decorations all around the streets, troupe drama, parades, and much more.
