The previous name of Chinshing Divine Palace was Chinshing Temple and in 1997 it was altered to the actual name before inauguration of the reconstructed building. The main deity of worship was Three Ancient Kings. It is said that in 1890, ancestors who lived in the rear area of JENJU community molded soil statues, then the statues revealed divine manifestation and declared themselves to be Three Ancient Kings and designated the seven-year-old youth, Mr. Lee, Chau-mu, who lived in the rear area as mediator. From then on, he started to kill demons and devils, rescue all living creatures, and assist numerous people. The temple was reconstructed for three times. The primary temple was a thatch building and The Three Ancient Kings were worshipped. Afterwards, the deities of Kai Tai Kuo Shen (Formosa Founder), Shie Tien Da Di (Supreme Heavenly Monarch), San Shan Kuo Wan (Three Mountain Kings), Shi Tien Tzun Wan (Western Honorable King), Guanyin and etc.. were incorporated in succession as objects of sacrifice. In 1999, members of the temple and JENJU Community Development Association jointly coordinated to arrange a national worship ceremony for Cheng, Chen-kung and the activity came out unprecedentedly successful. The present Temple is the largest one of The Three Ancient Kings in Taiwan. It is currently the headquarter of Chinese Taoism Three Ancient Kings Enlargement Association.
