a sacred palanquin came

During watching people parading the wide street, A sacred palanquin was coming. Many people were carrying it while they were calling out. The palanquin seemed heavy. The faces of the carrying people were distorted.

A deity was stationed on the palanquin. And the deity was watching the cityscape from there. Such situation comes only one time a year. So the deity could enjoy watching the transition of the city.
