Taoist bureaucracy-heavenly emperors.

Under the Taoist gods, there are four Heavenly Emperors respected as Yu Huang (Jade Emperor) who governs other deities, and the other three who help him. Their positions and costumes indicate their status.

Yuquan Taoism Temple was first built in early Tang Dynasty, collapsed, destroyed, rebuilt several times. The temple blends with the surrounding harmoniously, which is an element of the Taoism. The temple fair on 9th of the First Month of Lunar makes up a joyful picture of local people and custom.
