Wen Chang Temple

The statue of Imperial Lord Wen Chang was transported to Taiwan by a merchant from China during the Japanese colonial period. The merchant, who was staying away from home, worshipped the statue day and night. However, after his business failed, he lost interest in worshipping, and abandoned the statue in a forest. One evening, a woman saw the statue. Not knowing where the deity was from, she gathered many people in a ceremonial reception to welcome the deity. An old man felt that the statue bore resemblance to Imperial Lord Wen Chang, the deity who looks after the fortune and reputation of people. Hence, they built a small temple on Lane 45 of Minsheng East Road to properly worship it. Later, most believers seeking academic success came to worship the statue. It was said that their wishes were oftentimes granted. 

It is the only temple in the district that enshrines Imperial Lord Wen Chang. It has many worshippers, and students who come to pray for success during the examination period often have their wishes come true.

    Nice temple (but don't make a special trip unless you have an upcoming examination)

    FOLKLORE: This temple is dedicated to the god of wisdom and is a favorite of those preparing for examinations. This temple is consistent with other Asian temples (nothing special), so I would not make a special trip to visit the temple unless you had an upcomng examination. I recommend three other temples in Taipei Longshan Paoan Confucius

    町に馴染んだ小さい寺です

    朝市のついでに立ち寄りました。このあたりは雑多な感じではありますが、台北の素顔が見えるような気がしました。小さいお寺なので、占いがあるわけでもありませんが、建造物としてみればやはり素敵でしたし、屋根は見ごたえがありました。わざわざいくほどではありませんので、朝市のついでに行ってみてはと思います。

    MRT紅線の雙連駅から北に少し歩いた所にあります。 線香を5本取り、火をつけ、順番にお参りします。 小さなお寺ですが、熱心な地元の方が沢山いらっしゃいました。
