  • 保安宮始創於1742年,是台北三大廟門之一。主要木造雕樑建築、是國家二級古蹟物、也獲得亞太文化資產保存獎。三殿三進式的大廟,可細心欣賞在各殿牆上的石雕作品、是採用現代科學保護方法和傳統建築及裝飾工藝修復而成。用彩色磁碗而製成的剪黏手工也十分仔細、色彩鮮明。  more »

  • 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.
