Tian'en Temple 天恩宮

Anchor point

Introduction

Located in the Neiwan area of Maokong, Tian'en Temple is a faith center of the rising I-Kuan Tao religious movement. The temple rises four floors and is built in a traditional Chinese palace-style with white outer railings and vermilion pillars adding to its stately appearance. It is said that during the temple's construction, workers worked hard but unsuccessfully to dig a well. Later a water source was found behind the temple purportedly with divine guidance, earning the temple site designation as sacred ground. The spring flows with clear sweet water that is well suited for making tea.

Adherents of I-Kuan Tao worship both eastern and western gods and this eclectic spirit is also reflected in the temple. In addition to the statue of the movement founder, visitors will see the Maitreya Buddha, smiling gaily without worries in the main hall, with Guanyin (Avalokiteśvara Bodhisattva) and the Taoist deity Guan Gong (Guan Sheng Di Jun) on the two sides. The temple often holds classes for spiritual cultivation and moral guidance and scripture classes for children.

    Attraction between Maokong Station and Zhinan temple

    2018-10

    In case you plan to walk or take a stop between Maokong Station and Zhinan temple you can visit Tianen temple. Located just on main road in the hill side, if you drive car or motorcycle 🏍 you park in front of temple

    Down the road from the gondola

    2017-12

    We came by here after walking down the road from the Maokong Gondola station. The temple is quite large and multi-leveled. There was a nice looking incense holder up front. We weren't able to go inside but we did have a look and there was a large Buddha. There is a bus stop just outside the temple so you don't need to walk.

    猫空ロープウェイの猫空駅から東の方へ、台北市街の遠景や茶畑の風景を楽しみながら15分くらい歩いたところにあります。4階建ての立派な中国宮殿様式の建物で、中に入ると満面の笑みをたたえた布袋様(弥勒菩薩の化身)が迎えてくれます。

    Хвалить особо не за что, как и ругать.

    Красивый новенький буддистский храм. Посетить можно в ходе прогулки по местным горам. Ничего особо оригинального нет. Просто храм. Хвалить не за что, как и ругать. Зато прекрасный вид на город от него.
