Pray for wealth and luck in business at Hsing Tian Kong, a popular Taoist temple in Taipei’s Zhongshan district. An impressive structure erected on the corner of a very busy intersection, the temple worships Guan Yu, the patron god of businesspeople. Constructed in 1967, the temple features many intricate carved designs and contains a collection of dragon sculptures. Locals flock here to pray, while people wait in line to get a blessing or take part in open lectures held by various Confucian scholars. The busy temple has its own subway station, and no burning of incense is allowed inside the temple.

  • You can feel calm and joyful when you go to the palace. Every time you leave the country, you will go to pray for peace, and the platoon will feel protected when they are surprised. Also saw the children's clothes directly to the volunteers to be surprised. The service here is really good! Also recommended to Japanese friends

  • Temple is located at the intersection of minquan East Road and Songjiang road, appearing in three kingdoms [Kanu] so enshrined. Have a lot of blessings, prosperity seems to pray for your people, it was crowded. Places to visit seems to have order. Let's pay a visit to the street signs.

  • Get used to working at the noon break with a colleague from a driver to pray for the gods to bless the disaster, and then line up with the volunteer mother-in-law to be surprised, feel that the work of the can be dissolved.

  • A famous tourist attraction in Taipei where locals come here to seek blessing from God for good health, luck and fortune. It is also a good place to find inner peace and serenity.
  • The architecture is beautiful, activities was fun. I do as the locals does, pray and asking a question, then given a number that I can refers to a piece of paper that has answers that I was asking for. So much fun.
  • It’s one of the bigger and more popular temples in downtown Taipei and is conveniently served by a subway station. It has a welcoming vibe and is not intimidating, unlike other places of worship that impose strict rules to visitors and non-adherents. They offer clean restrooms and free drinking water.
  • If you played video or computer games revised from the Chinese novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, this is definitely the place to visit. There is a statue of the famous character, Guan Yu/ Kan U, who becomes a god of religious Taoism with reputation of integrity, righteousness and loyalty. The style of the temple is relatively simple, but the solemn mood is noticeable. The temple is very famous for its power to expel the bad influence of evil spirits, and also the accuracy of its simplified oracles available to all.
  • Many people but feel very peaceful. Great place to visit. Recommended.
