Features

Lukang's Dizangwang Temple is one of the few temples dedicated to the Buddhist bodhisattva Dizang (Kṣitigarbha). The temple was refurbished by the eight major guilds of Lukang and the local gentry using a part of the funds donated to renovate Lukang's Tianhou Temple. The temple houses several important artifacts, including a statue of bodhisattva Dizang dating back to the 8th year of Emperor Jiaqing's reign in the Qing era (1803 CE), a plaque reading ""honorable one from India"" dating back to the 4th year of Guangxu Emperor's reign (1878 CE), and a plaque inscribed with the names of donors for the reconstruction of Jingyi Garden on the right side of the front gate, which dates back to the 23rd year of Emperor Jiaqing's reign (1818 CE). Bodhisattva Dizang is commonly worshiped in Taiwan and especially honored in Lukang. In terms of worship, Dizangwang Temple is a classic folk temple that has inherited the complex characteristics of Dizang beliefs since the Ming and Qing eras. In Lukang, there is a saying that goes ""the north has Matzu Temple, the south has Dizangwang Temple"", which represents the differing religious beliefs of different communities in Lukang; the north adores the sky, the south venerates the earth. This divide is historically significant, as it is closely related to the immigrants, local gentry, religion, faith, and social values of Lukang.
