I have been a fan of Chiang Kai-shek for many years and really enjoyed visiting his ancestral home. Evidently this is the home that his family lived in for quite some time in the past.

It is a special place in this small village to visit with an impressive history, many Chinese people come here to pay a visit, the mountain area around the village is fantastic, and Chiang Kai-shek build a temple in the mountains in the years before he escaped to Taiwan.
