Pray for wealth and luck in business at Hsing Tian Kong, a popular Taoist temple in Taipei’s Zhongshan district.

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.

  • 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.
