Introduce

Longshan Temple, commonly called Quantai Kaiji Sikunshen Temple(全台開基四鯤鯓龍山寺), was the earliest temple to enshrine Qingshui Zushi(清水祖師) in Taiwan. The temple was built in during the 19th year of the reign of the Yongli Emperor of the Ming Dynasty in 1665. Military personnel and civilians from Anxi County in Quanzhou who came with Koxinga welcomed a statue of Qingshui Zushi from Anxi Qingshui Temple (安溪清水巖), and settlers from Pinghe County in Zhangzhou (漳州府平和縣) welcomed a statue of Sanping Zushi(三平祖師) from Sanping Temple. They jointly established a temple to worship these gods at Sikunshen(四鯤鯓). The temple has been rebuilt many times since. Today it is resplendent. Although now named Longshan Temple, unlike other temples with this name, it enshrines Qingshui Zushi not Guanyin Bodhisattva (觀音菩薩). The door god paintings also aren’t like those of other temples, they are of four ghost kings who are said to have been subdued by Qingshui Zushi; the paintings are the work of master Pan Li-shui.
