Features

Xingang's Fengtian Temple was built in the 16th year of Emperor Jiaqing's reign (1811 CE). The temple was renovated several times throughout the years, by renowned craftsmen including Wu Hai-tung (1867-1938 CE) and Hung Kun-fu (1865-? CE). For example, Wu Hai-tung oversaw the repair of more severely damaged parts of the temple in the first year of the Taishō era (Japanese colonial period; 1912 CE), including the front gate, additional side gates, front side gate, and side halls, while renowned craftsman Hung Kun-fu created the Cochin ware jiannian used to adorn the front gate when the temple was renovated once again in 1961 CE. In addition to its architecture, the temple is also known for housing artifacts, such as the Pilgrimage Flag of Fengtian Temple in Xingang, made in the Japanese colonial period; a tablet reading ""bestowed by the reigning emperor"" given to 20 significant temples in Taiwan by Myōshin-ji—head temple of the associated branch of Rinzai Zen Buddhism—with the consent of Emperor Shōwa in the 3rd year of the Shōwa era (Japanese colonial period; 1928 CE); and the only statue of Hu Yeh (the Tiger God) with gold ornaments on its head and sitting on a table (this deity's statue is mostly found only at the bottom of altars). Each year, the temple holds the Lantern Festival Matzu Pilgrimage of Fengtian Temple in Xingang, which covers a large area and lasts 8 days and 7 nights.
