Why are there so many ancestral shrines here? Back in the Ming and Qing dynasties, when a villager passed the highest level imperial examination, the proud relatives built an ancestral shrine to commemorate the achievement. The shrines are still in active use today, with regularly scheduled ceremonies throughout the lunar year.
Patterned Tile Wall
This patterned tile wall was made in 2010, a collaboration between community members and a local artist named Wu Ding-Xin. They used tiles traditionally fired in a kiln to create a striking kapok (red silk cotton) tree. You'll find it on a wall attached to a residence behind the Temple of Protection in Qionglin.
