Cyonglin Village

   Present day Cyonglin village preserves the lifestyle of the Tsaii family, of which many generations have lived here. The ancestral temples of the Tsai clan in Cyonglin village has two peculiar features. The first is their large number: as many as seven can be found in the village, both big and small, making it the village with the largest amount of temples devoted to one family. The second is the strict discipline insisted on within the clan: they follow a code of 'Benevolence, Acceptance and Trustworthiness'. The eye-catching designs, the sculpture, the layer upon layer of ridges on the roofs all make these shrines the most outstanding buildings in Kinmen.
