    Quiet and impressive temple.


    Next to the Confusious Temple and a short walk from Yuanshan MRT station. Although not as impressive this Temple is much quieter and still has that mystical artistic charm. Worth a visit.

    Maybe Taipei's most beautiful temple


    The Bao An Temple is one of Taipei’s finest religious buildings and the architecture and the craftmanship that was necessary to build it is truly impressive. It is dedicated to the God of medicine and just right across the street from the Confucius Temple. In my opinion this might be Taipei’s most beautiful temple.

    Very interesting temple


    The shrine, murals and ornamentations are very impressive. It dates back to the beginning of 19th century and is a Taiwanese folk religion temple. Short walk from Yuanshan metro station.
