Introduction

In the 20th year of the Zen-yuan reign of the Tang dynasty (804 AD), Chen Yuan led his subordinates to cultivate the land for horse pasurage in Kinmen. From then on, the island of Kinmen had become more populous and vital. After his death, local folks built a temple and a statue at the place where his men stationed to clear the wilderness. He was worshipped and called Marquis of Horse Pasturage. In the Yuan dynasty, a temple dedicated to him was built at the hillside of Mount Fenglian. The imperial court granted him the title of Fu-You-Sheng-Hou (lit. Blessing Saint) with a tablet inscribed "Fuji (lit. Blessing)."
