Qionglin Village is located to the north of central Kinmen, on the western slope of Taiwu Mountain, and is one of the representative traditional settlements in Kinmen. In the past, woods surrounded the settlement, people used to called it “Pingling”. In the Ming Dynasty, a local resident, Cai Xian-chen was appointed as an official at the court, and Emperor Xi Zong of the Ming Dynasty named the place “Qionglin,” a name by which the place is still known to this day.
Being the largest village at the time, the structure and layout of this settlement is preserved well. During both the Ming Dynasty and Qing Dynasty, many local residents passed the government examination and became officials. Therefore, people called it the “Seven Shrines and Eight Ancestral Temples.” Now, its clan system and ancestral worship ceremonies are still preserved in good and complete condition.
