Introduction

Situated on Wenquan Road in Beitou District, Puji Temple is one of the few surviving Japanese-era Buddhist temples in Taiwan. It was built in 1905 with donations from railway workers and was known as Tesshin-in. Today, the temple is dedicated to Guanyin, who is locally considered to be the guardian spirit of the hot springs. In 1998, the temple was designated as an official historic site. The Japanese aesthetics of the temple are evident in the tranquil simplicity and sober design. The Japanese-style worship ceremony is continued to this day at the temple.

    the temple itself is small and not the most beautiful but when I climbed up here all sweaty, i felt at ease the moment i came in. Very serene!

    Tranquil temple set on a small hillside...

    This is a temple build for the Goddess Kuan Yin by the Japanese. It’s a small temple but beautifully built and it’s surroundings are well kept and serene. We took this as a nice detour after visiting the hot springs.

    Out of the Way, Hillside Wonder

    2017-02

    While in Beitou, we "found our way" to this Shinto Shrine. It is not well-marked, but a nearby monk showed us the way. A short hike up a hill and you can take in the serenity of this lovely shrine, built in 1905 and wonderfully preserved.

    MRTの駅から北投公園方面に歩いていき、公園を過ぎてさらに石畳の階段を登っていくとお寺があります。参拝客がいました。日本建築で、木材を使用した建物が新鮮でした。

    조용한 일본식 사찰 '보제사'

    2019-03

    일제강점기 일본이 세운 절입니다. 때문에 다른 대만의 사원과 다르게 일본 스타일로 건물이 지어진 게 특징. 지열곡에서 걸어서 10분 정도 거리에 있는 야트막한 산에 있으므로 관광지에서 벗어나 조용하게 있고 싶다면 추천하는 장소.
