Banbian (“Half-Side”) Well
“Banbian (“Half-Side”) Well” is actually a complete well located within residence of Wang Family in Yaolin Street. In early days, it is not possible that every family can have the finance to dig a well of their own. The master of the household had, therefore, dug well by the side of wall, while half side of it was offered for use of neighbors, and the half-side in one’s courtyard for own use, demonstrating traditional virtue of playing good neighbor.

On the threshold of Wang Residence, it is set down “San-huai-ting-xiu,” and the hall title was established on its own, which could be traced to Wang You, ombudsman of Control Yuan at Emperor Taizu of Song Dynasty. Wang anticipated his descendants to work up the ladder and turn grand officials and prime minister one day as he planted three Chinese scholartrees in the yard. And Wang Dan, second son to Wang You, did turn into prime minister during Emperor Zhenzong of Song Dynasty. Thus, offspring of former Wang You based on “San-huai-tang” as its hall title.

In former days, many public wells were installed in lane and alley of Lukang for public utility. In the 50s (1960-1969), the government promoted the installation of tape-water pipeline, and forbade mass to make use of well water from “public well,” which was sealed up one after another. For the time being, ones at Yuguicheng in front of Land Deity Temple and in front of Gong-hou Water-front Lady Temple still retain ruins of public well, only that well-water has already dried up.
