  • Outside is super chaotic. Inside, rich and peaceful. A great little history in the middle of a modern urban jungle. People take their prayers seriously so respect and discretion while you're taking pics. Beautiful, intricate shrines absolutely worth seeing in this trendy area
  • Aka the MaZu Temple, worshipping one of the most popular Daoism goddess who protects the fisherman in the first place, nowadays whenever people are going abroad they would like to pray to this goddess first. Inside here is SERENITY, very quiet and peaceful unlike outside it is still bustling. The lanterns and candles are BEAUTIFUL. I would say XIMEN not only is a place for shopping but it also have it’s history behind it, so DEFINITELY CHECK THIS PLACE OUT while you’re in Taipei!
  • “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
  • Decent looking temple located in trendy Ximending.
  • Very obscurely located. It looks really plain in the facade but it looks great in the inside. There's a toilet inside too.
