    Greatest Taoist Temple in Taiwan


    Xintian Temple (aka Hsing Tian Kong) is one of the most famous temples in Taiwan, with its main god being Guangong, who is both a protector of Buddhism and Taoism. In the Three Kingdom Era, GuanYu (Guangong's given name) was a loyal warrior with a red face and high moral standards, so he has become the protector of police and gansters alike, and even salesperson also pray him for good wealth and fortune. 行天宮 is a must see in Taipei city, and has an MRT station, so please visit when you want a feel of Taiwan's local religion.

    Patron saint of businessmen


    Hsing Tian Gong honours Guan Yu, the patron saint of businessmen. The construction is relatively new; it was erected in 1967. "Ghost money" is no longer burnt at the temple, in an effort to reduce air pollution in the city. It is not as venerable as Lungshan Temple, but it is a lot cleaner.

    Famous Temple in Taipei


    Also known as Xingtian Temple, this is a famous temple on the corner of a major intersection, along Minquan Road. This temple is devoted to Guan Yu, patron saint of business people. Occupying over 7000 square meters, the temple was constructed in 1967 so despite how old it looks, it is a recent design. In an effort to reduce air pollution, this temple became the first to ban burning of incense. The side street next to the temple offers many affordable street foods, which is nice. There appear to be countless temples all over Taipei and this one is quite famous. The metro station for this area is by the name of the temple: Xingtian Temple Station, across the street from the temple.

    This beautiful temple is located in downtown Taipei. The temple is grand with all it ornate and intricate carvings throughout the place. The beams, panels and roof are absolutely gorgeous. It is open to the public, just be respectful. The people are nice, warm and friendly.

    One of Taipei's most popular temples


    Hsing Tian Gong is one of Taipei's best loved temples. There is no English name outside, just look at the address. I've been past the temple many times without knowing the name of the temple.. Hsing Tian Gong is very well organised, often hundreds of people listen to preachers. When I visited it was very busy. Many volunteers help keep the temple running smoothly. The temple is a handsome structure, in traditional Chinese style.
