With its 100 years of history, Chen De-xing Hall has been designated as a city historical site. Chen Ying-bin, a well-known Taipei craftsman at the time, used a Qing Dynasty southern Fujian architectural style to build the hall and used the commonly known “prince-building design” that combined a Yingshan and Xieshan double-eave roof, a splendid and finely carved wooden structure and brackets between crossbeams and columns, to create extremely high artistic value. The very unique double-dragon column in the front hall is Taiwan’s first double-dragon stone column. One dragon is above and one below, representing one ascending and one descending in a juxtaposed manner. They are known as the disordered dragons, and since then, they have had a far-reaching effect on temple design in Taiwan. The exquisitely shaped shrine and the elephant temple candle stands made of tin in the main hall – something rarely seen -- have been completely preserved. Since the Chen family are descendants of the ancient Emperor Shun, the hall has a dragon wall not seen in other ancestral homes. This is a dragon sculpture on a wall that can be used only by those families with emperors in their ancestry.
Every year, during the Chen family ancestor worship ceremony in spring and winter, Chen De-xing Hall is thronged with descendants who come to worship, and in quiet times, part of the space inside the hall is used as a kindergarten, so the ancestral hall serves as both a symbol of the clan and a signifier of cultural heritage.
