Halfway through the staircase between the Second and First Worshipping Platforms sits a huge Long-du, on which nine lively dragons are carved. In front of the Long-du stands a pair of newly crafted, 6-meter Huabiaos.

At the rear of the platform one will find the bronze statues of the Twelve Animals of the Years, a masterpiece by Mr Lee Yiu-fai (Yee Kok), the Abbot of Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple, and Professor Wan Xu-de, the former Chairman of the Sculpture Institution of Shanxi Province. The statues are dressed in various ethnic costumes and possess humanistic outlooks to demonstrate the different characters of the Animals. Each statue, around two meters tall, is highly worth artistic appreciation.
