Description

Built in 1757, Dizang Buddhist Temple is also named as Public Temple or Public Master Temple. It used to worship public masters of civil and military, but now it worships Ksiigarbha Bodhisatva. From two days before May 1st, a folk custom event will be held: "Anfang", which is a ritual to drive away ghosts; and on May 1st, there will be a grand acivity held to pray for the safety of people. This is an annual event and the climax of the acivity: people from the temples in this town will form a big group and hand out Xianguang Cake and safety charms to bless those who are luckyenough to have them.
