The Lin family shrine

     Lin Fei-jhang was a wealthy merchant of Houpu who in 1837 gave some money for this building to be made. Since the family was very much respected on the island, their residence was quite large, with two courtyards, rooms to the front and behind, and rounded ridges on the roof. On the left the complex is enclosed by a side wing of rooms, termed a hulong, while to the right the courtyard opens to another dwelling area.

     This large building has the traditional swallow-tailed roof ridges, and three courtyards. Above the door hangs a plaque with the phrase 'To benefit the community around' written upon it. This plaque bears witness to the help that Lin Ke-yuan, one of the Lin descendants, gave to the government in crime prevention and protection of the community.
