The layout of Yulan Festival follows traditional customs. Deities shed, theatre shed, Ghost King stage, Priests shed, Lone Soul stage, Ancesters stage, etc. Each bamboo shed has its own characteristics and is dizzying. The colourful and eye-catching Chiuchao-style paper works, traditional flower billboards, and all kinds of Chiuchao cakes and pastries are dazzling. The venue is as if it were an exhibition of Chiuchao Folk Crafts.
There are 3 great robes in the robe shed, namely, the robe of “Heaven and Earth Parents”, the robe of “South and North Stars” and the robe of “Blessing Deities”. There are only 2 great robes at the Yulan Festival in the Chuichao neighborhood of Sham Tseng. They are called Heaven and Earth robes, which are dedicated to the heavenly father and earth mother respectively, one each for man and woman.
There are also food, offerings, wine and tea sets in the shed. The number for each set of wine and tea sets during the ceremony is significant. A set of 12 wine cups represents the 12 months; 24 represent the 24 solar terms. The 10 bowls represent the 10 Zodiacs, offerings for the Deities. The number used varies by region.
