The Selection of the Giao Tong takes part in the Nine Sphere Palace. The three enclave Cardinals are seated in a line with the Chamberlain in the centre. Candidates are brought forward in a line. The candidate bows to the 3rd Enclave Cardinal, the 2nd and then the Chamberlain. The Chamberlain holds out his hands with the palms downwards and the candidate kisses the back of the Chamberlain's hands. If the candidate is considered to be the Giao Tong, the Chamberlain stands. The Giao Tong has been chosen. The other two Cardinals stand and all three bow to the new Giao Tong. They walk behind the new Giao Tong and make a reverence to him. The temple bells are rung and the Giao Tong is taken to meet the faithful.
