Heritage and Culture Education Center of Taipei (the historic Bopiliao area ) 臺北市鄉土教育中心(剝皮寮歷史街區)

Anchor point

The Heritage and Culture Education Center of Taipei is located in the historic Bopiliao area of Wanhua District near Longshan Temple. This area has preserved much of its Qing period roots, with arched brick arcades, carved pattern window lattices, and other traces of the city’s early elegance. Old-style shop-houses (with stores in front and living areas in back) also remain from that period, opening a window to the early development of the Bangka (Wanhua) area, lending a unique historical and architectural flavor to the area.

Visitors can learn more about the history of the area at the Heritage and Culture Education Center. The center has different theme displays and hosts special exhibits on Bopiliao as well as educational activities.

    Old treasured street.


    The ancient street is nearby the Longshan Temple and MRT Station of the same name. Thre street dates back to the 6th century and has been preserved by the current govement. If you are near the temple find this gem.

    Ancient Ruins in the Middle of the City


    The place is accessible via MTR. Bopiliao used to be a busy area during the ancient times. Good to take picture and to relax from the busy streets. With exhibits on the trading times years before.

    This ancient street in the Wanhua district dates back to the seventh century but was "frozen in time" after the Japanese occupation in WW2. It is quite a feeling to walk through this cobbled stone little street with several historical shops near the Longshan Temple. We enjoyed it.

    An old street being treasured


    It is already being renovated. Not all are old but they were able to preserve its ancient style. There are shows and arts.

    I found this ancient street from a tour guide book and ventured out with the family by following the map and instructions. The ancient street is very nearby the Longshan Temple and Longshan MRT Station and about a quick 10 minute walk around the old neighbourhood takes us to the Bopiliao ancient street. The ancient street was preserved by the Taipei Mayor in 2009 to preserve its more than hundreds years of history maintained from the Qing Dynasty and one of the earliest establishment of the Old Taipei City that connects DanShui River that helped with the vibrancy of the city. The city has done a wonderful job preserving the ancient street with many free activities by artists and fun games for children to participate. I even think this could be a perfect venue for some wedding photo shooting.
