Songshan Feng Tian Temple 松山奉天宮

Anchor point


Commonly known as “The Temple of Heaven”, the Temple enshrines the Heavenly Emperor as its main deity. It is situated at Fude Street, by the foot of Tiger Mountain of the “Four Beasts Mountains”. It originates from first the year of Tongzhi reign (1862). At that time, an ancestor from Tangshan came to Taiwan alone, and resided in the cave of Tiger Mountain. He hung a red silk writing that read, “The Heavenly Emperor and various deities” by the walls of the cave entrance, and set up an incense burner on the rock to worship it. However, the cave was damaged during the Japanese colonial period. In 1954, people rebuilt a temple with bamboo at the same location to pay tribute to the Heavenly Emperor. In 1959, it was officially named “Songshan Feng Tian Temple”. From 1967 to 1977, it continued to expand, where the main hall was renovated, and a pilgrim building and library were built. With a floor area of more than 3,300m2, the place is able to accommodate more than a thousand pilgrims. From here, one can overlook The Presidential Office Building, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, CKS Memorial Hall, The Grand Hotel, International Trade Building, Grand Hyatt Taipei and City Hall, and is an excellent place of worship and enjoying the scenery.

    Temple with vividly colored ceramics ornamentation across from Raohe night market


    As other reviewers have noted this temple has amazing multicolor ceramic ornamental details on the outside and ceramic murals inside. It is still a place of worship but visitors are allowed inside.

    Temple with amazing attention to detail


    This temple is a couple of stories high. There are so many details to see, it is unreal. Much of the ceiling is carved-out lanterns. It is absolutely beautiful. There are many opportunities for you to pray, and they do provide many items for this as well. It is very well thought out and visitor friendly. Staff/volunteers were all very friendly and helpful. Absolutely gorgeous temple

    入山的階梯,每一個階梯都有法語,可以一步一步的慢慢欣賞閱讀。 許多福德箱,有結緣的"福壽米""唸珠",喜歡的話可以隨意香油錢結緣,宮內也有供奉"月老"與"華陀",可求姻緣與健康。 一、二樓都有供奉神明聖像。旁邊還有一個展覽場地,不定期有藝文展出。 後面有階梯步道,喜歡爬山的人可以練一練腳力。有停車場,可從斜坡道入內。 內有飲水機。

    My Temple


    奉天宮 並不是 "世界有名"的廟宇. 但是, 我們將它視為 "我們的" temple. 簡直是 美極了. 無限感恩 啊 ~ 兩層樓的 廟宇建築, 雕梁畫棟, 沒有一處是重複的 圖騰. 感恩 有這樣的機緣 在我回台的每個日子 可以 常常來 參拜 .
