    Taoist temple pilgrimage must see


    Its a small temple in Di Hua st.if not for the smoke from incense and people praying at the kong you will not notice that the temple is there. This may be a small temple but its rich with history and relevance in the Taoist faith. Another treat to visiting this temple are the Taoist shops across the street where you will find Taoist articles that you will not find anywhere else.

    Good Little Temple Near The End of Dihua Street


    This was an interesting little temp,e stuck between very old buioldings near the end of Dihua Street and definitely worth a visit and one of the more interesting sights in the area.

    Almost Missable


    A small, almost missable temple that apparently attracts a lot of single people (and there were certainly a number of young ladies there). The temple is dedicated to Cupid, who (it is told), while remaining in an upright position, will grant you a good marriage. This particular temple is also known to have the highest density of deities in Taiwan, and there are certainly a lot of them.

    OK Temple


    Quite a busy small temple. Not in the prettiest of locations but it is easy to find.and not too far from several night markets. I would make a special trip to see this temple but worth a look if you are passing by.
