Beipu is located in Hsinchu County's Beipu Township, on No.20, Zhongshan Road. It covers an area of approximately 50,677 square meters. During the Qing Dynasty, it was orginally a mixed settlement consisting of the Saisiyat and Pingpu peoples, but now, a majority of its residents are Hakka. Guangdong's Jiang Xiuluan and Fujian's Zhou Bangzheng are two of the most important individuals who contributed to the development of Beipu. The Fujian-Guangdong conflicts were a common event in Taiwan's history; Beipu was then formerly known as "Zhubei Yibao Nanxing Village". The background of Beipu's special armed immigrants, combined with Hakka flair, made Beipu into a unique cultural settlement, and led to the construction good defensive buildings. Nearby attractions include Jin Guangfu Mansion, Tianshui Hall, and Citian Temple. Tianshui Hall was the former residence of Jiang Xiuluan. It's built in a sanheyuan style. The courtyard walls are built out of washed stones, and is quite different than the building style of traditional Chinese buildings. Built during the Japanese occupation era, it's classified as a level one national historic site. Jiang's ancestors currently still live here, so therefore it is not open for visits. During late April to early May every year in Beipu, it becomes a good place to enjoy firefly ecology.
