    Taisui is the Star God in charge of one year. According to legend, he was known as the demon of the heaven.

Every constellation respectively has one God and altogether there are 60 Gods who take turns to be charge of each year.  The man of the world born in a certain year shall have the God in charge of that year as his Star God of the order.

    The deity ascension and spirit empowering ceremony for the Taisui hall of this temple was held on 17th day of the 10th lunar month of 1993 (30th November 1992). It is the first local Taisui God hall with full facility. The Taisui of 60 cycles of sixty years enshrined for worship there is the branch spirit from Yuanchen Hall of China Beijing Bai Yunguan.
