  • Taipei is located on the north side of the tube and as a God to the temple. Sometimes referred to as the ' grave ', the grave of Confucius ' temple ' armed with a personally on the person to call is so grave that even calling Wu's coffin. Pipes from all over the greater China Taoist and Buddhism actually crying look amateur, enshrined in the shrine hall is referred to as the principal inventor of the editions of the theory, because even as a God of Commerce Chuang. Therefore, it comes with the purpose of travelers to tourism, rather than finding a place for praying earnestly something locals. But you can see the Chuck free divination as well, and the Korean leaflet explains how to view the fate to put those travelers interested in because this way if you wish to visit or see hope fate is one of the fun.

  • I feel so blessed , cause at first I was not planning to visit this temple but my friend bring me to this temple . It is so beautiful, ancient and peace.
  • Like an oasis in the city, you could come here to sit, to pray, to meditate, or even just to take a seat to relax after a long city trip. People always come here to search for peace of mind. Even you are not familiar with that religion or ritual, but you still can feel the power which can clam everybody down.
  • Inside on the east side is an information computer with a few languages to learn about the religious practices of this temple.
  • A good place to visit. Not touristy but crowded with locals
  • An old and popular Taiwan temple. Good for people who want to know more about Taiwan religion. This temple can be your first stop of your Taiwan trip.
