The temple was originally built as the Jinsheng Pavilion in 1662 to worship Tudigong during the Qing Dynasty under Kangxi Emperor to accommodate migrant people from Quanzhou in Checheng. It was later renamed as Fu'an Shrine after funds were raised and the pavilion was renovated during the Jiaqing Emperor. In 1953, it was officially renamed as Checheng Fu'an Temple.
The temple was built with Northern China royal temple style. It is the largest temple in Taiwan that is dedicated to Tudigong.
