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.

  • 對於當地人來說 可以拜恩主公 可以收驚 可以求籤 都是免費 不過現在不拿香了 對於觀光客來說 是一個值得一來參觀的景點 
  • 台北市中心內的重要廟宇,也是許多人的信仰中心,廟宇主要供俸恩主公,該廟非常跟得上時代的觀念,鼓勵大家不要燒香及金紙,減少空氣汙染,建議大家雙手合十誠心禱告。另外,廟方也提供收驚的服務,保佑信眾平安,建議要去收驚前要留意服務的時間。 
  • 2014/8/26之後已禁止拿香及供品祭拜神明,訴求「敬神的香有沒有買也不要緊,若一個人的心地善良,自然會散發出道德的馨香,這樣恩主公最喜歡。」宣導心誠則靈及環保觀念給前來拜拜的每一個人。另外,進到廟裡會有感受到平靜安定的氛圍,真的很值得大家前去!

  • 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.
