CHINESE MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of the Middle Kingdom...

WEI-CHENG

Chinese Security God

Also known as WEI-CH'ENG, WE-JENG

Backdoor Security God

One of the MEN-SHEN.

Like his military comrades, he stands guard in the doorway, defending it against evil spirits and burglars. Unlike them he works round the back of the property and is not nearly so visible.

As most intruders automatically make for the back entrance, you’d think he’d be more popular, but the other two tend to steal the limelight.
