  • There is a temple of the land God to Center on Taiwan folk beliefs, Taoism and Buddhism and other religions. Dark Buddhist Hsinchu City God Temple is Taiwan's distinctive style, the structure of the building, fills up within Taiwan restaurant has a unique atmosphere. Served as a tourist spot, the place of worship of the people of the city. From early morning till night people incense in hand, six buildings in all over the shrine visit. Worship is incense before the 三拝. While standing, one who kneels, who fell down on the floor and pray. Elderly people and young people are all that seriously. Each worship Center-right-wing, left-wing and at least three kamukura has all right to pray and takes one hour. Order of the visits so far have put the incense next to posters. I wish every weekend and so happy last days without pain and received a life sentence is ill dog has left Japan with! Equally mixed with the local people and to pray, to where people will feel no difference between feelings and prayers and wishes the happiness of someone. Instead of just viewing as a bystander during a visit, take incense in hand ahead try please.

  • 周圍有許多商家,但賣的多是米粉、肉圓、潤餅等類似的食物,也有賣彩券、刮刮樂等。如果你想要一探新竹有名的城隍廟,可以安排前往,但我不認為你會想再來第二次。因為為新竹較早開發區,馬路狹隘、還有一塊三角地,造成非一般十字路口,除了過馬路危險外,停車位不易尋覓。  more »
  • 城隍廟可說是新竹市早期的信仰中心,城隍廟周圍有許多小吃,米粉,貢丸在這裡都可以吃到,城隍廟離火車來訪站有段距離,這裡停車也不好停,在平日會比較好一些。  more »
