An abbot of a temple called Jiulonggong in Baoshan Township, Hsinchu County of Chinese Taiwan worships Chiang Kai-Shek, a political and military leader of 20th century China. His temple has started to consecrated Chiang-Kai Shek's statue since the year 1989. Although the temple always keeps a low profile, there are groups of retired general officers that come to worship Chiang Kai Shek's statue.

Currently, there are ten temples worshipping Chiang Kai-Shek in Chinese Taiwan, among which two are in Hsinchu County, said the abbot, according to China Times, one of the four biggest newspapers in Chinese Taiwan.
