Songshan Cihui Temple 松山慈惠堂

As the Chinese poet Liu Yuxi had famously contemplated, “Mountains are prestigious for the presence of immortals, not for their height; seas are sacred for the inhabitance of dragons, not for their depth”, the Songshan Cihui Temple in Taipei’s Fushou Mountain was founded, and is currently operated, by Guo Ye-zi, a devoted and virtuous Taoist priestess who insists on a career of universal relief through a facility that educates, inspires and purifies its followers. In other words, the temple was constructed out of the founder’s ultimate compassion that urged her to extend self-help to others. Dedicated to “Wuji Yaochi Dasheng Xiwang Jinmu,” or “Mother of the Infinite Jade Pond,” this awe-inspiring, gracefully landscaped temple is nestled amid verdant hills to evoke religious sentiments. That explains why it is a mythical sanctuary for Taoist deities and immortals, a Mcca for Taoists seeking peace of mind, and an intriguing must-visit for tourists. Occupying an area of approximately 33,000 m2, the towering Cihui Temple comprises a group of elaborately structured, five-story buildings flanked by pagoda-style bell towers for an imposing and magnificent effect. The patio outside the temple’s 2nd floor main hall commands a panoramic view of downtown Taipei, which is exciting and unforgettable enough to make you want to linger longer. Patterned after traditional Chinese temples, the main structure is a quaint mixture of the distinctive palatial arts from the Ming and Qing dynasties and modern architectural techniques, ingeniously accentuating the mountain area’s luscious pine woods with its red bricks and yellow rooftops, in a dazzling manner, like a green cocktail garnished with a red cherry.

    虔誠的信仰

    本身因為信仰的關係有時候會來上香拜拜,這地方也會有許多信眾會來虔誠的上香祈禱保佑自家,周邊附近也有些用餐的空間!

    松山慈惠堂位於虎山登山口旁

    2017-05

    松山慈惠堂位於虎山登山口旁,主神是王母娘娘,爬四獸山的時候偶爾會去借用洗手間,印象中會在台北市辦遶境活動(這類的活動中南部比較常見)。

    台北市登山,散步,散心。好去處

    2016-07

    距離台北市只需要10分鐘的行程,就可以到達的佛門淨地,清境悠閒,夏日更有熒火蟲可賞,這在市中心更是難得一見。夜間注意有蛇。

    值得一去

    2016-04

    善信大德修心養性靈修之所,更是遊覽觀光必到之洞天勝地。該堂占地面積約一萬餘坪,係由架構精密之五層樓建築群組合而成, 廟宇巍峨,高聳雲天,左右再配以塔式鐘鼓樓,更顯得氣勢磅礡,雄偉壯觀。
