Features

Located in Yilan's Toucheng Township, Qingyuan Temple is the first Matzu temple in the region. Toucheng is one of the earliest Han Chinese settlements in the Lanyang region. Located near Wushi Harbor, it developed into a prosperous town with a thriving market before the Japanese colonial period. Qingyuan Temple was built on the market street, providing blessings to passing merchants and residents for over a century. Qingyuan Temple was first built in the Qing era. Though the temple underwent multiple renovations and expansions over the past century, a lot of the original architecture remains, including the stone reliefs and columns by the entrance. These were carved by craftsmen using local stone materials to create a simple and elegant style. There are also wood carvings and murals that showcase the masterful craftsmanship of different artisan traditions. Couplets written by two county magistrate assistants in the Qing era and a plaque reading ""universal respect to one's ancestors"" presented by local worshipers to express their respect for Matzu can also be seen at the temple. These artifacts are important cultural assets of the temple, which was made a county-designated historic site by the Yilan County Government in 2014.
