This stele is located in the Grand Hall (大殿) of Beizhen Temple. The size of this stele is 119cm (body height), 74cm (width), and 16cm (depth). The body of this stele is in good condition. There are four characters, “Yu Xiang Bei Ji 御香碑記” (Stele Record of Imperial Incense), on the front of the stele forehead. This stele was established in the 2nd year of Zhizheng (1342). The stele does not have a title. According to its contents, it is named “Stele of the Sacrifice by Muba Lasha and Tu Jianli Buhua in the Name of the Emperor”, which describes Emperor Yuan Huizong sending officials Muba Lasha (木八剌沙) and Tu Jianli Buhua (禿堅里不花) to perform a sacrifice to the spirit of Mount Yiwulü. There is a list of names carved on the back of this stele, as well. Composed by Wang Yuan (王遠), the stele top and body were calligraphed by Bode Zongmao (柏德宗懋). (Because the stele body is placed against the wall, the back of this stele was unable to be photographed.)
