Baimawenwudawang Temple , located beside the sea at Keti, contains images of two gods, called the Civil and Martial Kings. Legend has it that two corpses washed ashore here during the Guangxu reign (1875-1908) of the Qing Dynasty, and were buried by the local residents. Not long afterwards, the gods sent word, through a spirit medium, that a temple should be built. After the temple was completed, as a violent storm approached a light was seen passing over the bay, warning fishing boats to return to port for safety. This incident strengthened the faith of the villages in the gods. The temple is built in the “fire wall” style of eastern Fujian. The flowing lines and bright colors of the fire wall are a beautiful expression of traditional art.
