This once resplendent temple has lost much of its former glory. Built during the Ming Dynasty, the altar was once said to consecrate the minor deity protecting the town and its people. After many natural and man-made disasters and years of neglect, the temple is not now used to host religious ceremonies, but a peek inside the main hall might help to paint a mental picture of what the temple must have been like in ancient times.
