Nirvana Memorial Garden Ancestral Tablet

Ancestral Pedestal (also known as spirit tablet, ancestor pedestal or memorial tablet) has been the very symbol of Chinese ancestral worship that dates back to the ancient Shang Dynasty. The passage of time is changing the way we pay homage to our ancestors and families may not have time or space to honour their ancestors at home. Due to lack of space for altars and time, ancestral tablets are nowadays commonly installed in temples, clan halls or memorial centres where caretakers will perform worship on behalf of the family.
