Macao is a distinctive city where the East meets the West and where multiple cultures coexist, thus giving vigour to the dissemination of the profound Chinese culture. Among the many items of long-standing and profound folk cultural heritage, the belief and customs of Tou Tei (土地 Tudi/ Earth God) undoubtedly demonstrate the beauty of the Chinese people’s respect for nature and the harmony of the community. A wide variety of Tou Tei altars scattered in the city and the small altars served in households both show the vibrancy of the traditional Chinese culture that has taken root and flourished in Macao and the universality of the Tou Tei belief and customs in the city.
