|Abstract: ||新竹工業區(舊稱鳳山崎)是位於大眉庄(竹北)、紅毛港庄(新豐)、大湖口庄(湖口)、新埔庄(新埔)等四區交界的地區、屬於生產力偏低的低度開發農庄。清代采訪冊形容鳳山崎：山上一帶平原，周廣三、四十里；地高而燥，率多荒園，庄內居民人口稀少，錯落結盧而居。可見到清代末期，新竹工業區的區塊發展落後，是缺乏開發的農牧之地。 |
;The Hsinchu Industrial Park (formerly Fengshanqi) is located in an area where Damei Village (Zhubei), Hongmaogang Village (Xinfeng), Dahukuo Village (Hukuo), and Xinpu Village (Xinpu) intersect, it’s part of a low development farmland where productivity is relatively low. The history of Qing dynasty described Fengshanqi to be the following: plain on the mountaintops, surrounded by 30 to 40 miles of vast space; high altitude but dry, with high frequencies of abandoned land; low population density on the farms, residents live in huts scattered throughout the area. It was evident that at the end of the Qing dynasty the development in the Hsinchu Industrial Park area was lagging behind, it was a farmland that lacked development. During the early part of Taiwan under Japanese rule, Fengshanqi Village, by combining the four geographical areas of Wanggaolou, Fengshanqi, Zhugaowu, and Baodouwu, got more and more importance. The Japanese military fancied its high location and recruited the area by force in order to use it as a military base. In 1973, this area was developed into the Hukuo Industrial Park, allowing Fengshanqi to transition into an area that’s both industrial and residential, gradually making this area the center of industrialization and living. Through a hundred years of historic changes, there has been a large migration of employment population into the residential areas. Now the Hsinchu Industrial Park has surpassed the two old centers of Hukou County and Hisnfeng County. Industrial commerce, banking, transportation, police and fire departments, and education flourished, naturally make the Hsinchu Industrial Park a living center, and no longer a border area. Previous researchers, scholars such as Shi Tianfu, Lo Lieshi, and Lin Yuru, have primarily focused on the Qing dynasty as their research timeframe, which was why they did not face this local society that has been on the rise and changing. Even though He Ruiling has published her research paper on the family development history in the Fengshanqi area, it was still lacking in research in the local history of the Hakka land patron saint faith in the Hsinchu Industrial Park. Using the research by these scholars as my foundation, I will carry on the research results by these scholars and make up the deficiency of the dissertation in this area. This thesis will provide a complete research and analysis, starting with the Hakka ancestors who came to the Fengshanqi area clearing the area for cultivation during the Qing dynasty. The Land God (Tudi Gong; Bag Bong) played an important role in the lives of the Hakka ancestors, helping them to overcome the problem of geography, weather, and planting. It will continue with exploring the changes of the Land God and its temple, as the area transitioned from an agricultural era to an industrial one. This thesis will also look at how the Land God went from being a corner local God of a farmland to a crossvillages temple and took on a new role as the center of faith in the industrial area.
