Guandu Temple (Kuantu Temple), Taipei
(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Dating back to 1661, Guandu Temple (Kuantu Temple) stands as a mixed Taoist and Buddhist temple dedicated to both Mazu, Goddess of the Sea, and Guanyin, Goddess of Mercy. On a hill, this immense temple’s upper levels and gardens provide expansive views over the riverfront below. Inside, find examples of exquisite workmanship: intricate decorations of stone lions, dragon pillars, wall sculptures and carvings. The complex includes smaller temples and sanctuaries and even a cave along the side. Brace yourself to climb countless stairs, though. If you enjoy the smell of incense, observe people praying. To escape the crowds of worshippers and tourists, take a stroll in the park behind the temple or along the riverside path. Take a look at our Taipei vacation trip planner to schedule your visit to Guandu Temple (Kuantu Temple) and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • It is a building with a sublime atmosphere along the cycling course. Cycle to the freshwater to stop by even in using the MRT is OK.

  • This temple is worth visiting, but it's quite far from the Taipei centre. You can take the MRT to Guandu and then bus R35 or S23 to Guandu Temple. Only visit if you have several days in Taipei. Both t...  more »
  • 假日去人潮很多,關渡宮周圍有很多小吃攤,炸地瓜片很好吃,之前去的時候還有類似園遊會整條的小吃攤,適合坐公車前往的地方,捷運下車還要走一段路才可抵達.

  • 拜拜很好,其它環境差
  • 關渡宮背山靠水、地靈人傑,風景美好。主祀天上聖母,也就是媽祖,依序並有觀音佛祖、文昌帝君、延平郡王、財神爺、福德正神,加上天公爐共六座香爐,旁邊許願池周圍尚有古佛洞千手觀音(有靈籤機),地藏菩薩,往上有廣度寺,走到三層有藥師佛祖,再往上則是一個小公園。供奉神佛眾多,有時也會支援龍山寺點燈,現在更提供線上點燈。距離捷運關渡站有點距離,不喜步行者可搭公車。
  • 停車塲可停很多大 小車輛,買礼物及小吃店,多 ~
  • Beautiful temple with great views on the Tamsui River and the city. He is reachable by underground passages from different sides. To reach by subway (Guandu station). Then follow the directions and always the red coloured afterwards run hanging over the streets.
