Pavilion for Literature Deity (Wen Chang)
The Kui Hsing on the third floor of the Confucius Temple in a niche is in the same form and the incense holder used to property of Minghuan Shrine. Both Wen Change Di and Kui Hsing are gods worshipped by intellectuals in Taiwan, as they are sure that the 2 figures will bring them luck. However, this is contradictory to Confucianism and in the stone monument erected for the newly built Wen Change Pagoda, CHEN Bin writes: “I have no idea about Wen Change and Zitung, are the 2 one or they are 2 different gods? Are they people or god?” and encouraged the intellectuals to work hard for knowledge, not for any position.
