[13.] Chinese Altar: Dimension for Ancestor Altar Table

Hi Cecil

I have to install an ancestor altar table but I realise those ready made are higher than my existing table.  I saw the fengshui ruler for yin.

My current Guan Yin table height is 126cm with side wings but actual height is 115cm.

I need to custom made a table lower than 117cm.

Is 112cm ideal for ancestor table or should be be same height as 117cm.

Appreciate your advise. Thank you.

Please note that there is another side to the Chinese altar.

And yes! It has to do also with common sense.

The rationale is simple. Other than those placed on the floor; altars especially for other gods e.g. Guan Yin etc.. are always at least 126cm plus minus.

The next best range is approximately 42" or 35" in height.

But this is never used for the simple reason that it is WITHIN REACH of a playful child's hand.

Can't blame a 3 or 5 year old child if they stretch their hands and........ swipe the whole altar down... It is not like Humpty Dumpty (HD) had a great fall.. Here, one is not talking about HD.. Chinese deity(ies). This is not the same.

In addition, such an altar cannot face a dining table....
