The construction of Fuyuan's Bao'an Temple is closely connected to the history of Han Chinese settlement in eastern Taiwan. In the 14th year of Guangxu Emperor's reign in the Qing era (1888 CE), Qing military premier Hsie Fang-jung (dates of birth and death unknown) built a hut dedicated to Cheng Huang (City God) in the Bazizhuang area to calm people's minds. Because Cheng Huang protects people in the underworld, the temple was named Bao'an Temple (""Bao'an"" translates to ""maintain peace"") and served as an important center of faith in the area. The current temple building is a faux wood, RC structure that is historically and culturally significant for retaining the architectural style of the Japanese colonial period. Like the Cheng Huang Temple of Taipei's Dadaocheng, Bao'an Temple stems from Tong'an, Fujian and represents a branch of the Xiahai Cheng Huang faith. Its seniority in Taiwan is second only to Hsinchu's Cheng Huang Temple. Bao'an Temple is especially significant for its location in the ethnically-diverse Bazizhuang area. The temple has preserved traditional ceremonies like the àm-hóng (""night patrol"") and annual marching percussion competition that are significant for upholding morals.
