City God Temple - Chenghuang Miao

Monk studying
In the Yuyuan Garden district we visited a beautiful old Taoist temple called the Chenghuang Miao, or City God Temple. The temple was built in the 15th century during Ming dynasty.  The temple was very active that day with many people burning incense and praying to their deities.
