New Year's Eve Celebration and the Chinese New Year Day at the Thien Hau Temple

The Time is open And is not set for any activity

Come and enjoy one of the hidden secrets of LA. The Thien Hau Temple which is located at 750 N. Yale Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012, will be holding its Chinese New Year's Eve celebration along with Chinese New Year celebration on February 9 and 10th, with 11 PM February 9 being the traditional start of Chinese New Year. Thien Hau Temple which has been long thought of as a Buddhist Temple is in fact a Vietnamese-Chinese temple dedicated to the goddess Thien Hau built and supported by Vietnam War escapees. Photography is okay inside and outside the only thing they asked you that you will not interfere with someone in worship by stepping in front of them and the altar.
It will be much color to this event you will probably have to use low light techniques for some of the evening happenings.
Please call the Temple for more information at[masked]

      Thanks, for sharing images that capture the event. A plus for me is looking at your other work and noting someone who enjoys capturing images of time. http://abelleraphotog...­

    It was some hard shooting. The place was packed more than a can of sardines...haha. Outside the gated area was a joke if you didn't secure a spot hours a head. The Lion dance within the temple was over filled. I decided to just look around and get what I could since I got there at 11pm after securing another ride...phew!

    The thing is, I'll be somewhere around there anyway so I guess this is a RSVP. Is that the tiny little place about a block from Hill? It's so small, how can so many people go at one time? IF that's the place I'm thinking. Oh Well!
