Jinshan Old Street (Jinbaoli Old Street) is located in New Taipei City's Jinshan District, Datong Li, on Jinbaoli Street. The narrow street measures 200 meters in length. During earlier times, Jinshan was land cultivated and reclaimed by the Pingpu peoples, and the name Jinbaoli originated from them. During the reign of the Kangxi Emperor, many buildings were constructed at Jinbaoli, and by the time of the Yongzheng reign, a street market had formed. It's also the northern coast's only Qing Dynasty old street. All the buildings located on the street are traditional, long shop residences, built in the Minnanese style. Furthermore, some characteristics of the old stone houses are still preserved. Located nearby is a barber shop, antique store, Cihu Temple, Guangan Temple, a century-year-old rice store (Taifeng Rice), a century-year-old Chinese medicine pharmacy (Boai Pharmacy), Zhongshan Hot Springs Park, Jinshan Lion's Head Mountain (Shitoushan) Park, and other scenic spots. Cihu Temple is commonly known as "Jinbaoli Mazu Temple". It worships Mazu, and incense always burns brightly there. Guangan Temple possesses a hundred year history, and worships the Sacred King. Ancient furniture is displayed inside the Chinese medicine pharmacy, as well as herbal medicinal pots. Some of the local snacks and delicacies include oyster crisps, taro pastries, red heart sweet potatoes, Jinshan duck meat, eggrolls, traditionally-made meat patties, pineapple cakes, Taiwanese stir-fry, taro balls, and more. Distinctive agricultural products are also sold, such as arrow bamboo shoots, yams, mountain vegetables, taro, and many other vegetables.
