  • Very nice temple and surprisingly wasn’t too crowded. Having it next to the night market is a bonus!
  • Absolutely beautiful temple! My favorite in Taipei. Three floors. And nice view outside from the last floor.
  • If you wish to see and experience how local people pray during Chinese New Year or anytime, this is the place to go. A famous night market is just 30 seconds walking distance away. Food massage, local food are also available. A great way to spend your half day in Taipei. 可以體驗拜拜的中小型寺廟,走30秒就是著名的饒河街夜市,有腳底按摩、當地美食,可以排半天的行程。
  • Lucky enough to catch up an event to celebrate the Goddess Mazu's birthday, really enjoyed the atmosphere here. Great culture, young people really respect their ancestors.
  • This is a beautiful temple at the ready side of the Rahoe night market.
