Chingshan Wang Temple

According to legend, fishermen from huian in mainland China brought the god’s image to Taiwan; when they carried it past Old Street (today’s Hsiyuan Road) they suddenly found themselves brought to a halt; the god refused to move any further. Throwing the oracle blocks to find out what the matter was, the god’s devotees discovered that he wanted to stay there and that is where they built the temple.
