Lukang Longshan Temple
The Longshan Temple in Lukang was built in the end of Ming Dynasty and the beginning of Qing Dynasty. The old location was near previous old port cannel (today’s Dayou St.) In the 51st year of Emperor Qianlong in Qing Dynasty (1786), Military Officer Chen, Bang-Guang suggested to relocate Longshan Temple to current location. After that, Longshan Temple has been renovated five times in the 60th year of Emperor Qianlong in Qing Dynasty (1795), 9th year of Emperor Daoguang in Qing Dynasty (1829), 2nd year of Emperor Xianfeng in Qing Dynasty (1852), the 11th year of Emperor Showa (1936), and the 75th year of the R.O.C. (1986) respectively. In 1983, Longshan Temple was appointed as the first-class historic site.

During the 921 Earthquake in 1999, Longshan Temple was severely damaged. The roof ridge in the main hall was broken down and the main gate and wooden pillars on the stage was trans-located. In 2001, the Government actively planed to repair the site. And entrepreneurs in Lukang, Pou Chen Group’s CEO Tsai, Chi-Jui and Chairman Tsai, Chi-Chien, made full amount of donations for repairing works of Longshan Temple’s main construction. The two brothers hoped to properly preserve the nation’s cultural assets. The repairing construction was Longshan Temple’s largest repairing work in nearly a hundred years.

Longshan Temple measures more than 5289 square meters; it has the layout of three main structures, two yards, and seven shop widths. From the front to the back, it is Shanmen (the main gate), Wumen Hall (including the Stage), Main Hall (including the sacrificial hall), and Hou-Dian (the back Hall). The ceiling structure above the Stage in Longshan Temple is the best work in Taiwan; it was build during the reconstruction in the 11th year of Emperor Daoguang in Qing Dynasty (1831) and has the longest history among all preservation works in Taiwan.
