Jishun Temple was built in 1838 and enshrines Baiyizunwang and Baoyidafu, who the residents call “Wanggong.” Located next to Shiding Elementary School on West Street, the temple plaza was the trading center for tea when tea producion was at its prime ime. This small-scale temple is built by wood, and the decoraions on the temple roof are ancient and give off an atmosphere of poeic seniment. The original temple was renovated in 1989 into a two-story reinforced concrete structure. Ater the renovaion, even though it looks less ancient, it has acquired a new appearance.
