There are many historical relics made during Qianlong and Jiaqing of the Qing Dynasty stored in the temple. They have rich historical value. Walls of this temple are shorter than general temples and are surrounded strange atmospheres. There are statues with ugly faces, outmoded instruments of torture, boards inscribed with threatened terms, and a big abacus. It seems like that soul of dead people is sent to the Cheng Huang Temple to accept trial.

    6. Ciji Temple

    Time of building: 1960 Consecrate Figure: Taoist Wu Taoist Wu was originally known as Wu Ben. In the 11th century, he was born in Tongan county in Cyuanzhou. He was good at medical skills, generous to people, as well as pure and with few desires. After he died, residents built the temple and consecrated his statue. The emperor granted the board carved with “Ciji” to this temple, and then successive emperors conferred him as “Zhongxian”, “Ying-hui-hou”, and so on. Since then Ciji Temples have been all over Changzhou and Quanzhou. Taiwan was a place with malaria in the past, and the Zheng clan and related officers are all from Zhangzhou and Cyuanzhou. Therefore, many people had beliefs and temples were built earlier. According to “Record of Fengshan County ” in 1719, the Ciji Temple was located to the north of Xinglong Village. In 1960, people with great respect rebuilt the Ciji Temple at No. 9, Liantan. The temple consecrated Baoshen Emporer (Bao-sheng-da-di) as the tutelary god for residents.
