Introduction

The Wenshan area of Taipei was first settled by immigrants from Anxi County in China about 400 years ago. They chose this area for its moist mountain climate, which was well suited for growing tea. They also brought their local gods, including Baoyi Zunwang, Baoyi Dafu and Qingshui Zushi. At that time, the settlers came mainly from three clans: the Kaos, Changs and Lins. As their numbers grew, the wilderness receded to cultivated land extending from Jingmei to Muzha, Shenkeng and Shiding. The gods also joined in this migration with the establishment of three temples, one of which is the Jiying Temple at Jingmei Market, established by the Kao clan.

Located in the old part of Jingmei, Jiying Temple is designated as a grade three historic site. The temple is imposing both inside and out, with elaborate stone engravings, wooden window frames and other decorative touches adding to its old-world charm.

    A Secret Temple

    2017-01

    A small temple, secreted away amidst a very busy market. Do not confuse this with a small shrine also located close by. While undoubtedly known to the local population, it also seems to be relatively deserted even by them. When visited, even the doorman was asleep at his post. It stands out however, in somehow appearing considerably more ordered, and colourful, giving it a more hospitable ambience. It also has some excellent stonework at its entrance. All of which makes it a temple worth visiting (if you can find it).

    地元の人が行き交う市場の横にあり、地元の人について行ってみました。日常的に地元の人がお参りに来るところ。人があまりいなくてゆっくりみて回れたのでよかったです
