The Ancient Temple of Shang-ti (Shang-ti Ku-miao) was situated on the western side of the present Lomond Road, behind the St. Theresa Hospital . The original temple was near the former Ma-tau-wei Village directly east of the present site. When the villagers were evacuated by the government and the whole village was levelled to construct new roads and buildings in 1927-28, the temple was destroyed and a new temple was constructed at the present site. Later on, the new temple was also demolished but the stone gate was preserved, the name of the temple remaining.
