Shanxi Temple dates back to the time of Koxinga in the Ming Dynasty (1628~1683). It took on its current appearance after being rebuilt a number of times over the years. The temple has a solid north China architectural style, a large square and magnificent arch, and features paintings by famed temple painter Pan Li-shui. The jianjiao sacrificial ceremony held every 12 years is its biggest ceremony. The temple has attracted much attention in recent years after Major League Baseball pitcher Wang Chien-ming, a native of Guanmiao, worshipped there. The temple has quite a few cuttings and signboards relating to the baseball star on display.
