Baojhong Yimin Temple

Phone:886-7-3841146 Address:800 No. 114, Baojhong Street, Sanmin District
The Yimin Temple on Baojhong Street in Baojhugo is the spiritual home of Kaohsiung's Hakkanese people. The predecessor to the Yimin Temple was Baojhong Temple in "Dagang", honoring over 200 Hakkanese "Loyalists" including Chen Tzu-Yun.Although Baojhugo both Min Nan and Hakkanese people live in this area, it is predominately Hakkanese and the largest concentration of Hakkanese people in the city. In 1946, the Buddhist Lin Rang-cai carried incense from the Baojhong Yimin Temple in Sinpu Township of Hsinchu County to Kaohsiung. The Temple was originally erected near The Railway Station. In 1973, worshippers moved it to its current location. Every July 20th of The Chinese Lunar Calendar the Yimin Festival is celebrated here. The "Holy Pig" competition is held in the square in front of the temple. Pigs are exhibited in a row, some weighing over a thousand kilograms. The ritual of deciding the top pig has become a popular feature of this Hakkanese festival. Every year on November 12th the Yimin Masters' settling in ceremony is also celebrated. This major ceremony is held to honor the spirits of the heroic dead.
