After Qin Yubo's death in 1377, the emperor lamented that he had never been able to persuade the matchless official to take up a post in the central government, which was rife with corruption.  The emperor decided to deify Qin Yubo in order to honour his learning and honest nature. The area surrounding his temple has grown into a bustling market, with over 100 stores selling countless varieties of traditional products.
