Temple of the Jade Emperor of Heaven

Along Pasir Panjang Road is a small temple with a colourful facade with statues of the Eight Immortals depicted as crossing the sea according to legend. This Taoist temple is where devotees go to to pray to the Jade Emperor of Heaven and a few other important deities in Taoism. Today I was there to accompany a friend who went to pray to Tai Sui, the Heavenly General who is in charge of the well-being of the mortal world,  as her horoscope and that of her son's clashes with this particular deity this year. Those born in the year of the Horse, Rat, Chicken and Rabbit will have to make offering to the Tai Sui deity to appease him so that all will be well for them in this year of the Horse.
