Features

The temple is three bays wide along the central axis, with carved wood windows and painted tiles that feature the mythical creature qilin on either side. Dedicated to Guanghui Junwang (deified form of Jin Dynasty statesman Hsieh An), the temple altar has an aoshou gate, i.e., the two side entrances face one another and protrude on either side of the central gateway, forming a recess. The altar is decorated with wood carvings and paintings, with a plaque reading ""blessings across Lanyang"" hanging overhead. In addition to its distinctive architecture, the temple is also known for the miracles performed by Guanghui Junwang. Frightened children in need of a siu-kiann (""recalling of the frightened soul"", traditional rite of exorcism) ritual or men about to begin their military service can ask Guanghui Junwang for a piece of tiger skin for protection. As a result, events like ""asking tiger skin for protection"" have become a unique feature of local culture.
