The temple is the biggest one of its kind in Taipei City. It enshrines the City God as its main deity, in addition to Sakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Amitabha Buddha, Goddess of Mercy and Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Imperial Lord Guan Yu, Imperial Lord Fu You, Imperial Lord Wen Chang, Monk Ji Gong, Wife of the City God, Fu De Zheng Shen (Earth God), etc. Inside the temple, the couplets, horizontal inscribed board, the ceramic cutting and pasting, drawings or carvings, aim to deliver one message: “pursue good fortune and steer clear of disaster, and enlighten the soul”, and “unconsciously influenced by environment”, to help provide insightful guidance to worshippers.

Small interesting temple, surrounded on all sides by shops. Its beautiful with an extensive library on the upper levelsThe Taipei City god temple is near by Ximen. Its across the main through fair and down the street. Its not large compared to other city god temples I have seen If you go to the temple you will notice on the opposite side is a great market of fresh vegetables, fruits and restaurants, down narrow lanes. On the same side as the temple is a series of clothing stalls I have included photos of the street signs so you can locate it , as well as the fresh food, fruit and vegetables market. Simply show locals the sign. You continue past the bank of taiwan , you come to a street with a kids clothing store on one side ( Les Elephants) and 7 11 on the other. You keep going and the Temple is on the Les Elephants side As well you will pass several bakeries and on the bank of taiwan side a great local coffee shop. I found a great ( famous locally) noodle shop off that same lane
Beautifully decoratedAfter visiting The Presidential Office Building and Peace Park, we wandered up the Main Street, Chongging, and spotted this temple. It was a good and fascinating scene. Many people and lots of incense. Incredibly decorated, colorful and detailed carvings. A beautiful site. The side street is very busy with shops lining the street. The sidewalk is covered, this is a common thing in Taipei and a great idea. Watch for traffic. If you are in this area, do take a look, it is a beautiful sight. Wheelchair accessible.

NIce TempleWhen you travel to the main city suddenly smell some burning stuff that could be the very interesting temple in the heart of the city. You can see the very traditional temple inside. The statues and decoration and chinese writing just a follow through of the chinese history. They are welcome to take photos.

Not impressive after seeing so many beautiful temples in TaiwanWhile we visited Taiwan, we saw numerous temples of significance and culture. This temple didn’t seem to have the same appeal. I’m not Buddhist so perhaps I wasn’t able to relate or be moved. My wife is Buddhist though and she didn’t want to stay very long. If you are in the area, you might want to take a look for yourself. It’s an easy walk from the Ningxia Nightmarket but the Taipei Main Station is closer.
