Features

Commonly known as Zhongwang Temple in Alishan, Wufeng Temple was repurposed from a konkai (shrines and meeting places in different indigenous cultures) in the 25th year of Emperor Jiaqing's reign in the Qing era (1820 CE). Wufeng Temple collapsed in an earthquake during the Japanese colonial period and was rebuilt with government funding and donations. The 5th and 14th Governors-General of Taiwan both visited the temple. The temple underwent numerous renovations after World War II and was expanded into a memorial park in 1985 CE. The architecture of Wufeng Temple is unusual among Taiwanese temples. The xieshan (hip-and-gable) roof is supported by 6 columns, mimicking a juanpeng roof (sloping roof without a central ridge). Moreover, it is adorned with upturned eaves and jiannian (artistic figures created from gluing together broken pieces of ceramics and glass) that exhibit masterful workmanship, and possesses a large, magnificent timber structure. It is also notable that the worship hall features murals by famed Lukang artist Kuo Hsin-lin (1902-1973 CE) that are well worth seeing.
