Itinerary

Sanxia Cingshuei Zushih Temple → Sanxia Old Street → Yingge ceramics Museum → Yingge Ceramics Old Street
  • Sanxia Cingshuei Zushih Temple

    Originally called Changfu Yan, Sanxia Zushih Temple has been the center of belief of local people since mid-Qing Dynasty. After refurbishing two times, the third renovation was designed by Li Mei-shu, a renowned painter. With his dream, he restored the temple by introducing many new construction methods. Learning from the merits of Japanese and European architecture, he added many engravings and ornaments to the temple. All the themes of the art works were adapted from Chinese and Taiwanese classics and folklore. No wonder people praise it as the hall of art. In ordinary times, the temple is always packed with worshippers. In the 6th day of the First month of the Lunar Calendar, there is a swine contest to celebrate the birthday of the master. On that occasion, the temple and its square is packed by worshipers and visitors, adding much festive mood to the neighborhood. The farmers of the swine that win the contest take the pig on tour to show respect and offer the swine to the god. It is said that if people touch the swine’s hair, they will become wiser. Those that touch its nose will enjoy peace and happiness throughout the year. Meanwhile, people that eat the pork will have good luck all year round. We welcome you all to join this festival during the Chinese New Year.

  • Sanxia Old Street

    During holidays, Sanxia Old Street is always packed with visitors. On the street, there are many old buildings built in the period of the Japanese rule. Blending Baroque style with southern Fujianese design, these buildings are archaic and magnificent. On their walls, carved patterns and pictures tell people of their past glories. In the street everything, such as sewer covers, door plates, sign boards, and stalls, is nostalgic. Walking into the street, visitors seem to travel through time to see is past. In the Old Street, many gourmet snacks, such as pork chop rice, ice soy pudding, ice cream, pork blood pudding, croissants, and more, are served. You won’t want to miss them.
