Jiuqu Lane
Small lanes and alleys of Lukang old streets have naturally formed into meander as they were developed by early settlements for resident would follow along river-way to construct houses. Lukang old streets as Jincheng Lane are considered within scope of Jiuqu Lane .As well spoken with Lukang bamboo lyrics, “Lujiang lanes and alley taste tea and wine, find some leisure in winter for a break, October wind and sand won’t penetrate, frost and snow of Nine Heavens can’t permeate,” it tells the fact that these lanes and alleys have, as well, have functions to prevent winds and sands. Thus, when one walks in meandering alleys it is warm as in spring-time.

Trade between Lukang with China in Qing Dynasty had employed canvass sailing ships to carry Chinese medicine, cloth, and other relatively lighter merchandise from Quanzhou, while these ships would use Quanzhou stone, fir, or red brick and other heavy objects to place weight at cabin to stabilize navigation. Later on, when Quanzhou stone and fir came to Taiwan, they become construction for houses and temples. In early days, sources of stone were quite abundant, and lanes and alleys were paved with Quanzhou stone and red brick. It was only until 60s (1970-1979) before it was replaced by tarmac. In 70s (1980-1989), lanes and alleys of Lukang were once again being repaved with red brick, and cable made underground to retain previous outlook with the planning of historical site preservation area and the promotion of national folk arts activity.
