  • “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
