  • 建於清乾隆十一年(1746年),位於台北市成都路的西門町天后宮,從捷運西門站六號出口步行數分鐘便可到達。天后宮的入囗佷小,在車水馬龍繁忙的西門町街道內走進廟內,別有一番景象。兩層高的天后宮是拜媽祖的,香火非常鼎盛,滿佈紅紅的燈籠和蠟燭,非常莊麗。天后宮還保留着充滿歷史價值的石像和彫刻,值得在遊覧西門町時順帶一遊。 
  • This is a historical temple located in the Ximending area. Great place to take a break from the busy shopping scene. We came in the evening and all the lanterns in the temple was lit. Very beautiful a...  more »
  • Tien-ho or Tianhou Temple, according to translations. They said guidelines that beautiful things come in small packages, and this is proof of this. Just a few meters from exit 6 of the Ximen MRT, and shopping heart, you can find you this magnificent temple, in the Chengdu Street. Also known (if you have to ask someone on the street) as the "Ximending Mazu Temple", Mazu is the main deity to which it is dedicated. Very nice, with beautiful statues of Mazu. If you are in Taipei, will go safe to Ximen, so it is advisable to visit him while raisins a day of shopping.

  • “Nice place to see” In the middle of a busy shopping street this little temple is a nice surprise. It's cute, modest and busy with local passerbys that stop for their prayers. Worth a 15 minute visit if you're passing from there
  • Very obscurely located. It looks really plain in the facade but it looks great in the inside. There's a toilet inside too.
  • 很熱鬧的寺廟。位於西門町街上,兩旁也是商店,入口不大,裡面很大,並存放許多文物,尤其是日治時期弘法寺的大師像,和許多石佛。
  • 鬧區中的百年媽祖廟
  • 廟址原是日本佛教真言宗之弘法寺,後改奉馬祖娘娘,此廟建於1746年,後有信徒稱弘法大師託夢,說此廟本為其寺,雖改奉媽祖,仍應祀奉弘法大師,後廟方於側殿奉祀弘法大師神像。因奉祀弘法大師,故日本遊客很多,天后宮看起來就年代久遠,古色古香
