  • Tucked away on the busy streets of Ximending this temple is a beautiful spot to slip into. It has a waterfall and Taoist art.  more »
  • 在台北西門町附近,商店住宅一間接著一間,天后宮就被包在都市叢林中,如果一不小心,可能就會錯過,但進入廟埕,腹地開闊,就像桃花源。天后宮主祀媽祖,最特別的是側殿奉祀日本弘法大師,間接記錄了台日的歷史因緣。  more »
  • 隱身於都市叢林中的天后宮,除供奉媽祖主神,還供奉著日本的弘法大師。高掛的燈籠,鼎盛的香火,在繁忙的街區中,更顯古樸而莊嚴。  more »

  • “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
