The City God Temple in Shaxian County is the largest and best-preserved county-level City God Temple in central Fujian, and is a provincial cultural relics protection unit. The Chenghuang Temple is located in the east of the county seat. The existing buildings were built in the 9th year of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (AD 1744), and were frequently restored during the Jiaqing and Guangxu years.
The City God Temple in Shaxian County is on Li Gang Road. It seems that the scale of construction is not small, with a strong sense of history and local Chinese religious culture. Go in and see a lot of knowledge, no tickets required. The park at the entrance is also very good, you can take a look.
The Temple of the Town God in Shaxian County faces south and faces the Shaxi River. It is a provincial-level cultural relics protection unit. The temple was built during the Qianlong reign of the Qing Dynasty (1744), and it has a history of nearly 300 years. Its scale is magnificent, with stone figures and beasts in the courtyard. The existing wooden frame and part of the high walls are from the Qing Dynasty and are the most complete and largest group of ancient buildings in Sha County. Stepping into the Chenghuang Temple, there is a primitive charm, and the history can be seen from the moss on the ground in the temple. There are old people in the temple playing cards leisurely, so good! In the Taoist field, you can see the word "Tao" when you get started. But when I walked in, I can see the "evasive" flags and drums and bells that were raised in ancient times. It seems that this is not just a city god temple. Of course, I don't have much research on this, so I dare not jump to conclusions.

The Chenghuang Temple is very simple, basically maintaining the ancient flavor of the original building. The two pagodas at the door of the town look very majestic. Stepping inside it feels like going back to the old time through time and space. There are also two columns of animal stone sculptures on both sides of the patio, as well as two weapon racks. The corridor has also become an activity center for grandparents in the area. Grandma is watching Wang Baochuan and Xue Dingshan, and grandpas gather here to play mahjong. We are still immersed in the local life. O(∩_∩)O sits in a bamboo chair and watches TV series. A small partner gives back to the three-missing grandfathers to save the field and fights against the mahjong table. Of course, Jiang is still hot. This student is pure I'm going to be a boy who disperses money, haha. The enthusiastic old people also entertained us to drink their own herbal tea. It was really pleasant.
