Weiling Temple

Western Taiwan

Enshrined here is a deified folk hero of the Ming dynasty – General Liu, known for his valour in fighting the Manchus. When a statue of the general was brought here, Lukang was in the throes of a plague. The masses came to pray for a miracle, and a wealthy family donated land for a temple. The original structure was removed in the Japanese era and a new one was later built at this address.
