The ceramic art capital of Yingge is hailed as Taiwan’s center for ceramics production. Visitors can also enjoy the area’s unique cultural refinement at Zushi Temple in Sanxia.
Historically, Sanxia (meaning three gorges) was an important goods distribution centre in Northern Taiwan due to its location. It quickly became a base for production and the streets of the town were lined with shops that sold dyes, manufacturing materials, and tea, however, after modernisation the town lost its economic advantages to other locations, and the riverfront area around Sanxia Old Street serves to educate visitors about Sanxia's past.
Located near Sanxia’s Old Street is the famous Zushi Temple, a fount of belief and worship for locals and travelers alike. There are five gates in front of Zushi Temple, which symbolizes its honorable and prestigious status. The stone sculptures and carvings in the temple are the works of experienced sculptors. The stone lions at the front gate are so lively and refined. The lions are designed by Mr. Li himself, featuring a more energetic and dynamic style.
In addition, a former base for production of tea, Sanxia complements its neighbour Yingge, a famed ceramics production base known for elaborate, beautiful tea sets with a quaint pedestrian shopping district.
