  • This Taoist temple is at least as beautiful as Longshan temple but it is smaller, by far less crowed, less touristic and really peaceful. I would say that it was the most beautiful temple we visited i...  more »
  • I would put the Bo'An Temple near the top of my must-see places in Taipei. It is magnificent with a variety of amazing architectural details, carvings, statues, shrines, etc. Grab some incense sticks ...  more »
  • But it is worth a visit. In front of the temple across the street you'll find the temple park and lot of local elderly enjoying their day.

  • One of the most beautiful temple in Taipei. My favourite anyway. The area of Datong around the temple is quite cool with food stalls.
  • Beautiful temple. Normally quiet, not a lot of people. Great view from the top. Definitely suggest to visit.
  • Very nice building that worships the god of medincine along with other 10 or so gods, across from the temple is its garden, also elegant and cozy.
  • Beautifully designed, a gem to walk through and quite quiet. Look at all the care and consideration that is given to all the various gods and deities.
  • One of the best temples in Taipei, no doubt.
