Features

By the reigns of Emperor Jiaqing and Daoguang Emperor in the Qing era, Beidou Street had developed into a prosperous commercial center on the Changnan Plain. This is illustrated by the saying ""first Tainan, second Lukang, third Monga, and fourth Beidou"". Immigrants from Hui'an—a county in Quanzhou, Fujian—brought a statue of Hsiao Fu Wangye from Fumei Temple—a temple located at Fumei Pier near the southern gate of Jinjiang, Quanzhou. To enshrine the statue, they built Fumei Temple on the north side of Beidou Street in the 3rd year of Guangxu Emperor's reign in the Qing era (1877 CE). Worship of Hsiao Fu Wangye, or Grand Tutor Hsiao, is common in coastal Taiwan, and often associated with the name ""Fumei"". Beidou's Fumei Temple is dedicated to Hsiao Fu Wangye, but the temple also enshrines other deities like Marshal Zhao, Marshal Kang, Lady Hsiao, the Five Camps of Celestial Soldiers, and Hu Yeh (the Tiger God). Grand Tutor Hsiao is generally believed to be Hsiao Ho (106-168 BCE) or Hsiao Wang-chi, the grand tutor to the crown prince during Emperor Xuan's reign in the Han era. A couplet on the altar of the main hall reads, ""May our country prosper as the mighty qian sui (royal lords) watch over Beidou; may the three lords of this beautiful land protect all of Luoyang"". Here, Luoyang refers to Beidou and Hui'an. The couplet includes the word ""fu"" (wealth), which can also be interpreted as Hsiao Fu Wangye's role as god of wealth.
