Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Sanzhi Township is a beautiful place with little pollution. We were born here and grow up here. We know a lot about this place. The excellent Feng Shui here attracts many people to build pagodas here. Water bamboo is a specialty here. Chianshuiwan Harborside Park is a good place for vacationers. The Seashell Temple is a unique structure. We sincerely hope that people can appreciate the beauty of Sanzhi through this research project.

2. Summary of Our Project

Sanchin Seashell Temple, built mainly with seashells and corals, is one of the most special temples in Taiwan. It is decorated with the divine characters and animals in the legendary Sea Palace. The Seashell Temple was first founded by an organization in San-Chung Township. Chi Kung is the temple’s main deity. Originally, the organization’s members took turns worshipping Chi Kung. Chi Kung once showed up in the dream of a member, telling him that he wanted them to build a temple for him. Later on, they decided to build the temple in Sanzhi. We’d like to take the advantage of International CyberFair to investigate why they formed the organization and how it has been influencing San-Chung Township. Besides, we’d like to look into what contribution the temple has made to the culture, economy and tourism in Sanzhi. We sincerely hope that people can have a better understanding about the temple and have a rewarding trip here in Sanzhi.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

To attend the International CyberFair means some points – the students learned how to accomplish a website, to observe the quality of other attendants, “Are they strong? Or weak?” makes the students better understand themselves and improve themselves. They are expected to understand the beauty and rich contents of temples in Taiwan. They are also expected to let the whole world see the rich culture of Taiwan through this project.

Less practice is the weak point of current education system, the students of Information management need to accept more practical train for being the pioneer of the academy. Compared to traditional way, internet has to be appreciated for its convenience to collect information, and efficient sharing.

3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

To light up the dark and complicated district SANCHUNG, a place full of gangsters, Mr. LEE SU CHUNG established the “ SANCHUNG FUFU art association” for revising the behavior of those missing lambs. By means of the performance of dancing BAJAJIAN, JOSS LIFTING, the energy of those teenagers has been drove out, at the mean time; the performance is helpful to spread the spirit of traditional religious culture, especially meaningful to the residence of FENGTZUWEI in SAN CHUNG city , Taipei county .

For the people of HENSAN Mountain in SAN CHIH Township, Taipei county , FUFU DINSAN TEMPLE plays a important commercial role since the particular construction constantly attracts tourists to worship the gods, brings the income and also is the spiritual center to local people.
