There are many ways to talk about Wang-Ye. Some people say that He is the god of
plague—sacrificed for people, other people say that He is Zheng Cheng Gong. It is an
interesting issue about the common currency and change in each time. Second, Wang-Ye
changed from the god who everybody scared to the god who everyone worships. Third, by the
belief and the legend in Wang-Ye, we can see the unsteadiness and the helplessness in
people’s life. Then, everyone thanks god and consecrate Wang-Ye, that’s a way to remember
where one’s happiness comes from.

field trips in Tainan—Nai Kuen Shen and Pingtung—Tung Lung Temple. It’s a good subject
to discuss the differences between these two temple. Many precursors had done lots of
researches in detail, even talked about the ceremony, Burning Wang-Ye’s Ship. So, this report
treats fewer process about the ceremony or Wang-Ye’s temple. The most important is that
