Ao Feng Kung
Ao Feng Kung, the most famous temple in Yuan-Chang, is located in the geographic center of this township. According to the temple's history, it was built in Ching Dynasty (1853), reconstructed in 1984 and expanded completely in 1986. The main worship of god is Great Emperor Paosheng. The god statue brought back by a pioneer and Yuan-Chang villager called Lee Tein from the same name temple, Ao Feng Kung of Chan-Chou City of Fujian Province to Taiwan. This statue was the first god stature for this temple. Regarding this stature, except for its head and the chair was made of wood; the all body below its shoulder was made of bamboos, so is its tabard. Speaking of this statue, it was unique and rarely seen in Taiwan which is considered an invaluable asset to this township.
Cooperation Irrigation Project (Resources Sharing)
Based on the concept of water resources sharing, a reverse-siphon engineering was implemented on the irrigation project of the Beigang River among Yunlin, Chiayi and Tainan regions. The irrigation activated the function of sharing between Tainan Wsanto Reservoir and Yunlin Chosui River. The whole pipe length connecting the two water resources spans 218 meters and extended to 447 meters with a pipe diameter of 1.8 meters, providing four cumec water fluid volumes after the reconstruction engineering of Beigang river banks in 1964. This project was unique one and signified a feature and considered an honor of Yuan-Chan Townships. (Excerpted from my Township, Yuan-Chan) Cooperation Irrigation Project (Resources Sharing)

The Mr. Fu Graveyard
The Mr. Fu Graveyard was first built in 1935, during the Japanese occupation period. Because the graveyard has been out of repair for many years and suffered from the destruction of two typhoons in 1986, after a reconstruction of the graveyard, the worship of ancestors was carried out in August the 15th Moon festival of 1989.
Hou-Jiang-Yen was once one of Fu Jian province villagers in the end of Ming Dynasty but immigrated to Taiwan Hsinshih City of Tainan County and later on moved to Lu-bai Township and transferred to Yuan-Chan in 1843.
