Around Jincheng Town : Kinmen Island

The night before the City God festival and following the ghost clearing ceremony in Jincheng Town at Kinmen Island, I did a short walking tour around Jincheng. Though it was night time, many of the historical attractions and the local temples were open so I just wondered in to have a look. Jincheng is a mysterious if not odd little town. There’s very little in English so I was left to try and imagine what all the things I was seeing were about. I wish I could tell you where each of those spots is in Jincheng, but I honestly have no clue.

 

Walk with me.

A local museum about Jincheng history and judicial system… This one I was actually able to track down – it’s the Qing Kinmen Zhen Zong Bing Shu (Wu Jiang Village).
