  • Is that everything is blessings of love. God of love said of Taipei late elders. I'm really afraid. I was at this late hour but passed because it is not interested in love (lol) so more health and longevity is important?! (laughs)

  • It is a temple is referred to as the love of power spot in guidebooks. But it is glittering decorations at the entrance or the nostalgic streets of shops are lined up in the troubles, such as once in. Walk from the North Gate Station is accessible.

  • 於1859年落成,超過一百五十年歷史的霞海城隍廟,位於迪化街中段,主要供奉位於廟中間的城隍爺。廟的面積很少,只有約46坪,但卻供奉了六百多尊神像。其中最受歡迎是掌管人們姻緣之神—月下老人,每逢西曆二月十四西方情人、農曆七月七日中國傳統情人節及農歷八月十五日月下老人生日,祈求恩緣的信眾會把廟擠得水淹不通。參觀當天是農曆新年前兩星期,廟內香火鼎盛、人流不算佷多、而大部份信衆也是拜月佬。
