The Temple of General Wu was built on the funds contributed by the local common people to commemorate General Wu. It consists of a front hall and a back hall, with side rooms and chambers, as well as a landscaped garden with rockwork. At the center of the formal hall is the shrine of the famous General Wu, with his scholar servant behind him and flanked by the God of Fire and the God of Water. Legend has it that General Wu, whose name is Wu Zan, was a brave and valiant general living during the Yuanhe Period of Emperor Xianzong of the Chinese Tang Dynasty. He was known by people as General Wu, and later regarded as the guarding patron of Wuzhen.
