Beipu Old Street
The rich cultural and lifestyle resources of the Hakka people and aboriginal tribes are among the most unique attractions here, including the only “first grade” national historic site in the Hsinchu area; the Jinguangfu Official Residence. This building is a witness to the development of the inner mountain area during the late Cing Dynasty, and is now more than 160 years old. It represents the spirit of cooperation between the Taiwanese (Southern Fujianese) and the Hakka people in developing this land. Other main tourist attractions are Beipu's Old Street, Tianshuei Hall, Chitian Temple and the Jiang Ancestral Shrine, while scattered Hakka settlements in the area clearly demonstrate the hardworking and simple character that the Hakka people have inherited from their ancestors in China.
