  • 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.
