文昌Wen Chang Di Jun (文昌帝君), Zi Tong Jun (梓潼君), Zhang Yu (张育), Zhang Ya Zi (张亚子)
There are two statues for worship: The one in Ci Hang Temple of He Ming Mountain is made of precious timber called gold phoebe nanmu; while the other in Wen Chang Temple of Dao Yuan Sheng Cheng is made of yellow wood; and the deity is being escorted by Tian Long (天聋) and Di Ya (地哑).
Wen Chang, whose original name was Zhang Ya Zi, rebelled against the previous Qin Government (秦) and was killed in Jin Dynasty (晋代). People commemorated his death by building a temple to worship him in Qi Qu Mountain (七曲山) of Sichuan. In Tang Dynasty, Emperor Tang Xuan Zong (唐玄宗) conferred a title equivalent to “prime minister” as “Zuo Cheng Xiang” (左丞相) to Zhang Ya Zi. Another emperor of Tang Dynasty, Tang Xi Zong (唐僖宗), also conferred a title to Zhang as “Ji Shun Wang” (济顺王) and offered his own sword as a solemn tribute. In Song Dynasty, Zhang Ya Zi was conferred more titles by the emperors and eventually he was named as Wen Chang Di Jun (文昌帝君). In ancient literature, Wen Chang Di Jun reincarnated seventy-three times; during his different lives, he always took the role as an honest government official with mercy and generosity. He is a deity of knowledge, literary works and examinations. His birthday is on February 3rd, according to Chinese calendar.
