    Best temple in Taiwan!


    We saw many temples throughout Taiwan, and this was the best, especially if you take the time to rest in their gardens.

    Beautiful part of history


    As informed this is the oldest chinese temple in the country and is currently almost in the middle of the Taipei city. Being oldest, it has huge following. It's a traditional temple with many statues and each one associated with some belief and story. Its good to visit to understand the culture and history of locals

    Very interesting temple


    This temple is beautifully decorated and is dedicated to the doctor of medicine. Worshippers seem not to be bothered with the hordes of tourists that were around. Very typical of what you would expect a Chinese temple to look like. When in the area also visit the Confucius temple a just across the road.

    Nice place good photo opportunities


    Very close to the Confucius temple, this temple is an active temple. We saw lots of people purchasing offerings and doing prayers within sales. Take some time to wander around. Take photos.
