Three years ago, during a demolition process designed to renew this area near Ximen station, the ruins of the Xi Ben Yuan Temple (西本願寺) complex were discovered. The complex was built between 1896 and 1929 by a Taiwan branch of the Japanese Shinso Hongan Temple Buddhist sect. Nowadays there's not much left of the Main Hall, but the Rinbansho (the residence of the head priest), the bell tower and other structures are still standing.
