Tin Hau festival, temporary prayer altar

As a little island in the South China Sea is celebrating Tin Hau, the village's numerous neighbourhood associations have set up temporary prayer altars. This is one of them.

To anyone who sees this and reads Chinese . . . what do the three characters mean at the base of the large 'incense' sticks? If you read Chinese and know, you are welcome to explain in Comment. Thanks!
