This plaque shows: rare Chinese family names, the 4 main characters thank the late Ming dynasty king whose followers stood steadfast against the Qing government and the name of the year of their illegitimate dynasty of Hong.

Lower right portrait is the father of modern Burma and Aung San Suu Kue, Bogyoke Aung San.
The current person in charge of the Five Harmony Hall, Fu Si Qiáng, who also performs rituals.
Every plaque was curved with the Year Hong Yun on the left. I think the cherry blossom may have a tie with the Kuomintang, the Chinese National Party. Hongmen branches coordinated with Kuomindang and US army to fight the Japanese in WWII, gorilla style. Numerous Kuomindang officers were Hongmen members.
