There are a lot of houses with a structure of "one floor and one base" on Old Street. These houses are strong and mostly used wooden materials that have high resistance to tremors and shakes. After earthquakes at different levels throughout hundreds of years, these buildings still stand firmly.
Due to the various levels of the floor, it is common to see this kind of stone stairs.
Merchants who passed the Tea Horse Road hoped to have the safety of themselves and their wealth, so the temple at the station was a place they will definitely visit. Even today, Old Street remained the debris and broken walls of this temple although some of the better statues of Bodhisattva seem to be newly created by later generations.
As time passes, Tea Horse Road no longer has people coming and going, the Bodhisattva of wealth somehow became the statue for pursuing children in the temple.
