Volcano God Temple
2011-09-19

  Constructed in the fourth year of Emperor Daoguang’s Reign, Volcano Temple has a history of nearly 200 years. With transverse tablet of “lofty mountains parallel with heaven” and stone tablets saying “King God”, “Local God of the Land” and “Yingdao God”, it has long been a “Landlord God” worshiped by common people in the volcanic area. There are 199 steps from the hillside land upward, in which, the number 99 indicates Double Ninth Festival, and 100 signifies many happy returns if you walk through the crater. On Dragon Boat Festival, local residents gather here to hold annual large-scale sacrifices to Moundety Mountain God, such as worship, acting, climbing and antiphonal singing of folk songs, which are busy and bustling, and handed down until now.
