Dadaocheng Cisheng Temple 大稻埕慈聖宮

Dadaocheng Cisheng Temple, commonly known as the Dadaocheng Mazu (meaning "Mother-Ancestor") Temple, dedicated to the Tianshang Shengmu (meaning "Heavenly Holy Mother"), the guardian of sailors and also known as Mazu or Tianhou (meaning "Empress of Heaven"), is one of the three main temples in Daodaocheng, along with the Fazhu Temple and the Xia Hai City God Temple. "The first door opens to display the beauty of Guanyin Mountain; thousands of ships have navigated over the running waters" is written on the front gate, pointing out the change of its location over the years. Cisheng Temple was originally located at the intersection of Xining North Road and Minsheng West Road back in 1866, across the trading port, with the Bali Guanyin Mountain to its front right, looking onto the bay of the Tamshui River flowing north. In 1910, the Japanese government tore the temple down to re-plot the urban streets. The locals funded the temple relocation to its current address on Yanping North Road, using the original pillars and stones and preserving its appearance since the reconstruction finished in 1914, until today.

    Local temple


    A temple in a very local Taiwanese area. The temple is smaller compared to others and most visitors are locals. There's some food stalls near the temple.

    Simple But Interesting


    A much less grandiose temple in decorative style, but there is still sufficiently enough to keep one interested for a while. Also has quite an interesting array of deities at the shrine. Because of its simplicity, it is also much quieter than many of the more well-known (and frequented) temples.

    廟の前の通りをいくつも屋台が並んでおり、昼からおじさまが達が楽しく飲んでいます。お酒を置いていない屋台もあるのでお酒を飲みたい場合は店員に確認が必要。 台湾啤酒70元とお客さんからお勧めされたかなりクセのある味のマンボウとサメの刺身 大150元を注文。おじさん達と一緒に狭い屋台のカウンターに座って飲むのは、かなりローカル感が味わえます^^ カウンターもいいですが、ガジュマルの木の下で食べるのも楽しい。店舗によってテーブルが決まっているので座る場合は注意してください。 迪化街からゆっくり歩いて30分ほどで行けます♪
