Introduction

Yen Ping Chun Wang Temple is a building modelled after old palaces. The area of the entire temple is 300 m2. It is located to the southwest of Jincheng. During the late Ming and early Qing, Zheng Chenggong (Koxinga) used Kinmen as the base to resist the Qing conquest of China. With an expansive view, Koxinga used to demonstrate his naval power here. While it sits across his hometown, Nan’an, it was built to symbolize the spirit of never forgetting the mainland.Yen Ping Chun Wang Temple
The Temple was built under the proposal made by the then Minister of Defense, Chiang Ching-Kuo, in 1967 when he was visiting Kinmen. The next year, it was ed that the Temple would be built in Xiashu; it was completed in 1969. There is a Paifang in front of the Temple with the inscription “Zhonggan Yidan” (good faith, virtue and patriotism). On the left and right sides of the square are two pavilions “Hao Ran (great)” and “Zheng Qi (rectitude)”, for visitors to relax. Solemn and magnificent, the large seated sculpture of Koxinga inside the temple is 2.1 meters tall.
