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

    裏でホッと一息

    2017-05

    雙連朝市の真ん中にあり、学問の神様を祀ってるので孫のことを思い出し参拝しました。あっという間に一回り出来ます。裏に屋根付きの広いスペースと、狭いですが小さい子を遊ばせる施設がありました。お年寄りが座って休んでましたが、私も仲間入り。水分補給し一息つきました。

    学問の神様

    2017-06

    雙連朝市を歩いていると路沿いにあります。学問の神様だそうですが、市の中で午前中という時間帯もあってか普通に地元のおじさん、おばさんの参拝者が多かったです。こじんまりしてますが、朝市に来れば自然に通るのでついでに参拝するのがよいと思います。

    学問の神様を祀った廟

    2017-01

    2017年1月に行きました。 雙連朝市の真ん中にある学問の神様を祀った廟です。雙連朝市に行った時に立ち寄りましたが、朝早くから熱心にお祈りする学生の姿がありました。 周りは朝一が開かれていて、朝から賑わっています。
