BangKa Qingshui Temple 艋舺清水巖

Anchor point


The principle deity at this temple is Qingshui Zushi, also known as Zushi Gong, Black Faced Zushi, Penglai Zushih, and Luobi ("Drooping Nose") Zushi. According to legend, Qingshui Zushi was worshipping at Qingshui Temple when a ghost blackened his face with a great fire, thus earning the god his nickname. As for the "drooping nose," it is said that the god's nose would droop downward when a nearby disaster was impending, warning the residents of impending danger.

    Small temple


    Qingshui temple was built in the 1780s. An intersdting little temple well worth a visit. Add it to the nearby Qingshan temple.

    Came here at dusk ...


    A few people were praying, but it was too dark to see much by the time we got there. They close the temple at 9:00 pm, I think, so there was plenty of time. Saw the temple before I was clear on how to get inside. City has built up around the temple, making it feel imprisoned in some ways, and not allowed to breathe. Go there if you're in the neighborhood (which I found not very impressive, and the people not so friendly.)

    Not very impressive


    not so interesting as most of the other famous temples in taipei, and the toilets in the back are pure horror...

    Just another temple


    Not really worth a special visit, especially if you have seen several of the famous temples already. The temple is dedicated to God Qingshui Zushi , who was a god from the Northern Song Dynasty who apparently saved a town from drought.

    Forgotten History


    A temple that was built in 1787, housing the deity of the founder of the Ching Shu Buddhist sect. A deity also that serves to protect immigrants. The temple was destroyed in 1813 during the Chinese war, but rebuilt again in 1867, when for a time, it also became a school. It therefore has considerable significance in Taipei’s Educational history. Yet, this temple appears to be a forgotten small temple that remains largely unacknowledged (or visited).
