Dadaocheng Cisheng Temple 大稻埕慈聖宮

Anchor point


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.

    Magnificent Temple in the middle of the night market


    This 1899 Taoist Temple is dedicated to Matzu the goddess of deadly waves. It is tucked in the middle of the night market so we wandered inside. There was signs all around us to watch our belongings, it was concerning. The Entrance was covered in red lanterns, there were lots of statues and a large Matsu.

    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.

    迪化街から徒歩圏内。近頃のオシャレ化に少々うんざりなら彼女はお買い物。僕はこちらで昼ビールなんてのもあり? 台北も2回以上の来訪ならショッピングも観光ももういいや・・みたいな方に是非。 パワースポットとしてもこじんまりとはしていますがなかなかのもの。10〜体の神様を決められた順番でお参りしていきます。思い切ってどうすればいいか聞くと丁寧に教えてくれます。 あとは何と言っても口吃! いわゆる食堂?というより屋台。 猪血湯は文字通り豚の血のスープ。血を固めたお豆腐のようなものが具材です。しかし全然生臭くありません。レバーっぽいのかと思いますがそれとも違います。 一度お試しアレ。 今回はそれと炒米粉(ビーフン)。ビールに合います!店の親父さん、走って買ってきてくれました!謝謝!

    MRT の大橋頭駅から、少し歩いたところにあります。 ローカルな感じな廟です。 周りに、古そうな感じの、屋台街がありました。
