The Temple Guy(.com) is dead! Long live the Temple Guy(.org)!
Well, not dead, exactly, but... Read more about it!




A simple 2-hall temple
dedicated to Tu Di, god of the earth.

Name: Fu De Temple (another name for Tu Di)
Main figure/s:  Tu Di--and his wife?  No one seems to know! 
Description:   The ubiquitous earth god is found on the fronts of many buildings, and under most folk altars (even the ones in people's homes).  Here he has a small shrine of his own.  One should really say "earth gods" as each one is responsible for the area around him.  We actually saw two such small shrines within the village in Dapeng Fortress.
Getting there:   Located in Dapeng Fortress
