  • Said stalls around the temple is filled with the here is image of dining room in the mausoleum. Praying raised incense people who pray are said to eat, which positions are staff. It is a must in the Hsinchu tourist spots, as well as dose is also charming. Images are coming together, and from the cafeteria menu, Kanji is a rough idea. Difficult communication does not need much of it pointing at sitting down and pointing at order would experience and thought. I think you can also smudge a little wet if you have the wettest, such as refreshing.

  • To Xinzhu looking for a century old shop and a traditional snack then you have to visit this Gu there's a time when every store has a long history worth visiting.

  • It's good and fun in just a few 10 meters. There are old shops, there are histories, more should be memories. The delicious meat circle, the fragrant fried powder, but also has the time memory the small cake point. Come and take a walk when you are free.

  • An icon of Taiwanese history and culture of the past hundreds of years. Staying inside the temple, let yourself feel the peace and calm, imagining so many ancestors trying their best to survive on this land and they have done a wonderful job that their descendants thrive here in Taiwan. Inside the temple, people are quiet. From their eyes and faces, they pray the best for their loved ones. You can see the sincerity on each face. I don’t know if God answer their calls but I am sure that people leave the temple with a peaceful mind. I think that is all we need most of the time - someone can listen to us. You may the noises outside the temple but it does not affect your peaceful state of mind. After visiting the temple, once you walk out of the gate, you will be immediately attracted to the wonderful smell of foods. On the right hand side, people line up for the delicious stewed pork rice and the dishes. On the front, the rice noodle and meat ball soup are the right thing to your hungry belly. Then, deserts are all around the places. The food itself also tells a lot of story about how the ancestors lived their lives. This is the place you must visit if you like to know Taiwan better.
  • Don't go there during 11-4 or during hot temperatures. The place will be super (I really do mean it) hot, sticky, and sweaty. Other than that, the place is loaded with great food. Highly recommend going there.
  • Very traditional, very old school, but very dirty and crowded.
  • Many traditional Taiwanese small dishes available here and good taste !
  • One of the most famous temple of Hsinchu city. Lots of traditional food here.
