  • And Temple in the town as a part of the city Temple in Taiwan reside many temples in the town convenience store, restaurants and food stalls lined the mingling and freed the gate is the main hall of the temple like of the innermost of the speaking of Japan easily taxis in the Temple through the gate, walk the dirt road climbing the stone steps up visits who showed up was, is a strong image and the old man says Taiwan temple gate different is released, passing under the gate immediately regardless of youth or young and old in the main hall there, but many people from Temple is crowded with beech look please feel free to visit from mingling in the city? There is no special feeling like fuらtto visiting the shop may have felt like visiting a friend's House and this is the Taiwan people always love country revered ancestors and natural, and thanks to in has the appreciation they continued, so power shining bright, strong, positive, strong and alive is to forget this feeling of gratitude

  • Images of animals (? ) Greeted me wonder this temple is. Confused and go with the image of Buddha in Japan. And tend to overlook it because the entrance is small town and goes into another world. As Lin Temple in Japan, unlike the clean feeling, like fun, is chaos.

  • 在台湾觉得很神奇的就是经常在任何地方都能突然发现一个小小的寺庙,不论是繁华商业区还是偏僻些的小山城,这里的人们礼佛的还真是多。在西门町乱逛着,一下偶遇了天后宫,不大但是气氛很好,寺庙里还有个小图书馆,门口有个可爱的小鱼池。

  • “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
