China 2017 – 4 – City God Temple

Shanghai’s City God Temple, built during the Yongle period of the Ming Dynasty, was closed in 1966 after hundreds of years of neglect but reopened in 1994 as an exquisite example of Taoist temple, garden and market grounds.

Dedicated to Cheng Huang Qin Yubo (1295-1373) the Emperor dedicated the grounds after his death to the health, wealth and safety of Shanghai residents.
