Huizhou in the Ming Dynasty was one of the regions where the system of patriarchal was well-developed and perfect. There the building of ancestral temple was common. The writer in this paper is to make a further argument to prove that the decree of offering sacrifice to ancestors enacted in the fifteenth reign of Emperor Jiaqing (1537) was the turning point in developing the system of ancestral temple in Huizhou. The thriving of offering sacrifice to the first immigratory ancestor in Huizhou was nodoubtly related to the worship of Wang Hua and Cheng Lingxi who were immigrants becoming local goddized images to be worshipped for their meritorious feats (for detail see the text). The scholars of Huizhou origin in the Yuan Dynasty advocated the system of offering sacrifice to the first immigratory ancestors giving impetus to the building of ancestral temples. The opinion that the character of building ancestral temples in Huizhou in the Ming Dynasty is the representation of the development of the system of offering sacrifice to ancestors, i. e. the offering sacrifice to the first immigratory ancestors possesses the function of gathering all the clansmen into one.
