Nankuanshen Temple, Peimen, Taiwan

The Taitien Temple of Nankuanshen located in Peimen Township is the county's only "secondary-classified national historical site." Fifteen other historical sites around the county have all been classified by the county. The temple, built during the Ching Dynasty (1644-1911), has grand yet delicate garden scenes and sculptures of stone and wood. Once a year, the temple holds a sacrificial ceremony to celebrate the birthdays of the gods that are worshiped in the temple. Followers come from other counties to take part in the activity.
