O Zhonghe-Xinlu Line Xingtian Temple
FascinatingLots of hustle and bustle, with people queued up to receive blessings or pray. Not much signage in English to explain what is happening but fascinating to watch others exercising the rituals of their faith. Nice small carp pond to the audience right of the main altar. And check out the street of fortune teller in the adjacent underpass.

Educational -- and differentThe explanation of many of the rituals made our visit worthwhile, such as interpretation of the "definition blocks," so be sure to allow a bit of extra temple-time when visiting.
A popular temple without incense-burningThis is quite a beautiful temple with lovely architecture and without the burning of incense at all. In addition to the front and main halls of the temple It is worth visiting both sides as there is quite a lot to see. Inside the main hall near the huge red wooden doors, there are tables and chairs where elderly people sit reading while in the center of the temple was a huge crowd of people waiting their turn to pray. I was surprised to find the temple very popular amongst the locals and there is a continuous stream of people entering and leaving making the place crowded and busy. The temple is about a 5 minute walk from the nearest MRT station, although I walked from my hotel on Min Sheng Dong Road and it took me about 25 minutes to reach there. Currently the weather in Taipei is hot and very humid so probably I should have taken a taxi to get there.
Historical and Environmentally FriendlyThis temple is located next to MRT station and is very clean and well ran. Even if you are not a buddist should pay a visit because it is one of the very few and ban the burning of incense sticks and paper god money. 30 minute visit
Easy to get toExploring Taipei we cane upon this temple which had many volunteers who are happy to help. It has an exotic feel and the architecture is mesmerizing. It doesn’t require a lot of time, but allows visitors to refresh themselves before going on to their next adventure
