  • At a temple in Taipei, and Confucius Temple is a bit away and fewer tourists. By taxi from Taipei main station 150 Yuan would not. In a quiet, likes to feel we can pray. In addition to gods and solemn and elaborate carvings are nice. Also located inside the four-storey building in the Buddha-like, so let's firmly worshiped. Nice view from the fourth floor.

  • 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.

  • It is definitely one of the nicest temple in Taipie. There is not so many people. Architecture and details of temple are awesome and there is also a lot of green plants, which gives peaceful athmosphere to the place.
