Jiaoxi Sietian Temple is the first and most important Guandi Temple in Taiwan. The temple worships Silk Guangong. This temple was built in 1804 by the Chingting Government. It was rumored that after the temple was built, local epidemics stopped and it became a flourishing temple from then on.
The temple’s architecture is majestic, solemn and luxurious. The thirteen day of the first month of the Lunar year is the auspicious day when Guanshendijun became an immortal. According to traditions, the temple worships the God and offer Hongpianguei made from the glutinous rice and sweets provided by the eight nearby villages. The Guei praying ceremony is adopted to pray for blessings.
In front of Sietian Temple, there was an ancient stage. It is the only stage left in Taiwan made of large wood structure design. However, the temple management tore down the stage in 1995 due to other uses planned for the vacant land in front of the temple.
