Chenghuang Temple is located next to the assembly Hall at 366, Zhongshan Road and was constructed in 1839. The temple was actually promoted and funded by the gentry from Yongning and Quanzhou, but it is sometimes referred to as 'Ao Ting Gong" which is named from the host temple, Yongning Chenghuang Temple. The temple consists of a main hall, front hall and rear hall with one inner courtyard. The main hall is dedicated to the "city god" Chenghuang, and you can see inscriptions in Chinese characters above the altar on a wooden tablet which denotes Chenghuang's responsibilities of administrating the earth and underworld. The main hall is also dedicated to Chenghuang's subordinates who stand on either side of him. The civil god and and the martial judge god are responsible for life and death. There are also two generals, Xie Be-an and Fan Mo[jiu who are responsible for arresting evil spirits. The rear hall is dedicated to the Buddhist Goddess, Avalokitesvara. While you are there take a look at the sculptures of the characters on the roof.
