Lunding Fude Temple

The temple was built in 1711 and worships Fude Zhengshen. It was renovated for the first time during the reign of Emperor Jiaqing of the Ching dynasty with funds donated by believers. The temple was renovated again in 1918. During the Japanese colonization, villager Li Chen-jung was very generous and enthusiastic about promoting the common good. He donated land for the temple and was elected as the temple administrator. The temple was registered in the name of “Gongye Fudeyeh”. When Li died in 1907, the deed was lost. Yang Ching and Li Chao-yang, the successive temple administrators, never registered the temple’s ownership. In 1947 locals raised funds to rebuild the temple in the present location. In 1973 locals raised funds again to rebuild the temple, and the construction was completed in 1975. Huang Ching-lung became the temple’s committee chief in 1979 and applied for temple ownership registration in 1985. The owner’s name was changed from Fudeyeh to “Fude Temple” until now.
