Appreciate the convergence of tradition, religion, and art at Chih Nan Temple (Zhinan Temple). Take a cable car to get to the mesmerizing building, built in 1882 to honor one of the so-called eight immortal deities. The temple, besides being beautiful, also serves as a sort of compass, with its front facing due south. Admire the statues of the deities and the famous philosopher Confucius, as well as the painted decorations inside and the views of the rich greenery outside. Legend has it that unmarried couples break up if they visit the temple together.

  • I went with a transparent floor gondola ropeway. Almost no tourists, local people you will here and there. People are too small and became worried. Well good to experience a different culture.

  • 經過指南宮多次,但是可能沒真正得進去過,這次為了幫忙一個活動,終於到了傳說中的大雄寶殿,本來應該直接開車到後山,不過還是開到了前山,車子誤打誤撞地放在猴山岳的登山口,另外穿過一座小徑經過指南宮纜車站到達了大殿。 應該是有重新整修,所以偏殿的屋頂還未上琉璃瓦,但是從上可以鳥瞰整個台北盆地,剎是壯觀! 從動物園捷運站有公車可以接駁上山,也可以走上來,另外也可以搭纜車,超方便。且山山相連,非常適合周末的...  read more »

  • Nice temple that is accessible by gondola(cable car) or by walking. Several temples, shrines, and great views of the city. Also a number of good hiking trails.
  • I really like this place, since it's easy-reached by just taking magnificent view gondola, and you can experience real temple culture of Taiwan, when you stepping out the station!!!!
  • 不想被賣店家敲竹槓,不想被強索停車費,別走萬壽路上去,走指南路去捷運指南宮站,又好停車站,又乾淨,也不用忍受店家的霸氣對待。就是寧願花了30分鐘油錢由萬壽路換去指南路,也不願忍受那種態度。
  • 風景好 建築有特色
  • 雄踞山頭,腹地廣大,視野遼闊,設施完善,商業活絡(約百家),夜間無人。 貓纜、棕5、530可達。
