Located in the north of the middle section of Xincheng Road, about 50 meters east of the Confucian Temple. The temple has a brick-and-wood structure with three front doors, the east and west doors are the land temple and the Zengfu temple. In the middle of the main hall, there is a clay sculpture of a golden-faced city god, about 4 meters high, very majestic; in front of it there is a wooden statue, well-dressed, sitting on the chair of the grandmaster, standing up suddenly by his knees, lifelike, every year the masses are "out on the tour" They were carried to the streets during the meeting, and worshipped by believers along the way.
