  • Must visit place in TAIPEI!!! Enjoy it more than Shilin
  • It's the most interesting temple in Taipei (one of the best in Asia probably)
  • Amazing architecture. Beautiful and colourful.. worth spending time to explore..
  • This is a beautiful popular temple, specially at night time. There are 5 levels and each level you ascend, it feels like you are reaching what you are praying. A must visit place! 夜晚的慈祐宮好美!香火很鼎盛的廟!
  • An amazing temple almost hidden next to the night market. You can visit and climb the 6 floors, all decorated with incredible sculptures and golden statues.
