Constructed in 1967, the temple features many intricate carved designs and contains a collection of dragon sculptures.

  • From the Zhongshan station to Xingtian Temple is 15 minutes ' walk. I think it won't get lost because it is adjacent to the large cross shop. In very bright compared to the shrine in Japan, and the evening was very crowded. I think such volunteers can advise how to worship for foreigners who were residing. We were in a narrow, time was about 20 minutes. Visit how to examine next, cast your fortune? Also I want to experience.

  • Worth the visit, modern, nice architecture , very atmospheric and beautiful, lots of people praying. 
  • 行天宫又稱為恩主宮.信奉關公..其為三國時代有名的戰將.他堅守信義,尊為武聖;也由於他很會理財,所以又被尊奉為商業保護神。想要了解台灣人之宗教信仰..這裡可一窺究竟..

  • 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.
