Located in Jinsha Township's Shamei area, Wan'an Temple is the religious center and principal temple for residents in Jinsha, Kinmen. According to Annals of Kinmen County, Wan'an Temple was founded during the Yuan era (1271-1368 CE), making it over 700 years old. Rebuilt three times, the temple now features exquisite painted tiles, carpentry, and stone carvings that bear deep cultural significance and showcase Kinmen's local landscape and distinctive folk art. Shamei's Wan'an Temple mixes Buddhist and Taoist beliefs. After Wan'an Temple was designated as a historic building by Kinmen County in 2003 CE, Hanyuan Temple's Park of the God of Wealth, Dashi Temple's Dizang Park, Haoqi Changcun Sanzhong Park, the Heart Sutra Park, and Shamei's Wan'an Temple Memorial Park were built within the same vicinity. Most recently, the Neige Sanzhong Temple was completed (2014 CE). Along with many renowned religious events, these places make up a religious zone with the most innovative temple designs in Taiwan.
