Chinese New Year - Chung Tian Temple
The Year of the Chicken begins at Logan’s Chung Tian Temple on Friday January 27th followed by 15-days of celebrations for the Chinese New Year. The Chinese lunar calendar is one of the most ancient, dating back more than 4,500 years to the reign of the Yellow Emperor, Huang Di. As ancient tradition dictates, Asians throughout the world are busily spring-cleaning their homes and hanging red lanterns in preparation for family gatherings over the New Year festive period. This year over 30,000 visitors will share the New Year celebrations with family and friends at the Chung Tian Temple. No doubt the hard working Chicken is sure to bring good luck and fortune to all present.
The Temple whose traditional name means “Middle Heaven” commences celebrations at 6:00pm with a range of cultural activities and finishes late in the New Year Eve with visitors ringing of the Blessing Bell at midnight to resonate peace throughout the world and good fortune for all over the upcoming year. In recognition of the cultural significance of these festivities the Chung Tian Temple is also holding a Cultural Open Day on Sunday February 5th.
