Jing Fu Temple 景福宮

Anchor point

Introduction

Built in 1875, during the first year of the Guangxu reign in Qing Dynasty, Jing Fu Temple was initially a 6m2 small temple. In 1961, it exchanged land with its neighbor, Tong-Yi Hotel, and was rebuilt as a two-story archaic style temple. Later, due to old age, the building underwent a large scale renovation, which started in 2000. The new building covers an area of 660m2, and has three storys and three levels of basement.

The new Jing Fu Temple has exquisite carvings, and most of the building materials for this structure were imported from China to ensure quality. Besides the dragon pillars in front of the main hall which are carved from a piece of diabase, the Door Gods on the temple doors are also carved from a block of red sandalwood. A highlight of the building is the large piece of “Dragon Parade” carving on the ceiling, which differs from common caisson ceilings. Worshippers can see the vivid “Green Dragon” dancing when they look up. The “Eighteen Arhats” carving on both sides of the main hall on the third story blend in with the landscape drawing, portraying the beauty of religious art.

    Jingfu Temple @Zhongshan... Taipei

    2019-01

    We found Jingfu temple while walking in Zhongshan neighborhood, as we were staying in the Aloft Zhongshan. This is a Taoist temple, built in the city, surrounded by many tall buildings. It's clear it is a definite neighborhood temple where locals flow in and out during the course of the day, but it does not seem crowded. Not many many tourists appear to visit, but we were clearly invited come in, explore the wonderful architecture and see the deities. Jingfu temple can be reached by rapid transit. It is about a 5 minute walk from the National Xiaoshan MRT Station. In spite of being a Taoist temple, it exhibitsthere strong Chinese characteristics. The entrance is quite beautiful, and a very large metal incinerator (for lack of a better word) greets the visitors. Here, offerings are burnt. The temple has grown over time, and the last refurbishment was in 2000. There are three floors. An elevator is available. The marble, the wood carvings, the beautiful orchids by the altars are stunning. The keepers motioned us to look around and take pictures. I wish I could speak the language and converse with the lovely temple keepers, and understand more about the temple.

    Beautiful Chinese Design and Architecture

    2016-08

    This is a sacred building for locals to worship and pray at. The building seems to address a number of uses. The architecture and adornment of the building is beautiful and the grounds are well cared for. Located in the heart of the city. Incense is burned, fruit is left for the deity, and colored red blocks are dropped as prayers. As the red blocks display themselves they give an answer to a prayer.

    韓国にも同名の所が

    2019-10

    口コミにもありますが、あまり知られていない所みたいですが韓国にちょくちょく行く私にとっては馴染み深い名前です。ただ読み方は同じか分かりませんが‥😄 建物高さがあり夜はライトアップでとても明るく目立ちます。 地元の方にとってはきっと親しみのある素敵な所なのでしょう! 仕事帰りのサラリーマン、OLさんが次から次へとまるで我が家に帰宅する様に入って拝んでいます。😀 インペリアルホテルのすぐ側です。

    じっくりと堪能できるお寺

    2019-08

    何も知らず、たまたまホテルから駅までの移動中に発見したお寺。そっと覗こうとすると、参拝している方に招いてもらい、中に入らせていただいた。お線香をもらい、見よう見まねで参拝。お寺の方が3階まであるから見て行っていいと言われて、ゆっくりと中を見せて頂きました。細かい装飾とlight up、観光客は少なく堪能できました。

    とても細かい彫刻

    2019-07

    インペリアルホテルから徒歩1分。MRTの駅からも徒歩5分程度。 とても細かい見事な彫刻が見事です。 台湾の方の新光の深さが分かる気がします。
