While walking, I came across a temple called Dongyue. This is a Taoist temple built in 1673, and judging from its name, it is believed to be a shrine dedicated to a deity called Dong Yue Da Di. He is the god of the afterlife.
Like many other temples in the center of town, this temple stands among the other stores on the street. Although it is recognizable as a temple because of its different appearance from the usual stores, it is hard to tell what it is about. It is probably obvious to the locals, though.
As I stood in front of the entrance, I could see the altar inside. Two worshippers were in the process of praying. A round stone was placed beside the entrance. Normally, a lion would have been placed there, but here it was simply a round object.
