Features

Dedicated to Baosheng Dadi (god of medicine, also known as Dadao Gong), Xingji Temple is located to the right of the Grand Guanyin Pavilion in the old Zhen Bei Fang area. One of the earliest temples in Taiwan to worship Baosheng Dadi, it is also referred to as ""Zhenjun Temple"" or ""Kaishan Temple"". People also refer to it as ""Dingdadao"" (head of boulevard) to differentiate it from the Lianghuang Temple, which is known as ""Xiadadao"" (tail of boulevard). The menshen (threshold guardians) painted on the doors of Xingji Temple are the works of Tainan's renowned artist Chen Shou-i (1934-2012 CE). They are Chin Shu-pao (? - 638 CE) and Wei Chih-kung (585-658 CE), outlined in gold and depicted with prominent lines, creating a unique style. A Fujian-style building of wood and bricks, Xingji Temple is comprised of its richly adorned front gate, a statue of Baosheng Dadi, longhujing (a pair of wells, one sun-shaped and one moon-shaped, respectively), the main hall of its baiting (worship pavilion), and a rear hall behind the shuilang (covered passageway). A guanting (official visitors' hall) between the temple and Grand Guanyin Pavilion where visiting officials would change clothes and rest remains to this day, making Xingji Temple one of the rare temples in Taiwan to have a well-preserved guanting.
