Pray for wealth and luck in business at Hsing Tian Kong, a popular Taoist temple in Taipei’s Zhongshan district. An impressive structure erected on the corner of a very busy intersection, the temple worships Guan Yu, the patron god of businesspeople. Constructed in 1967, the temple features many intricate carved designs and contains a collection of dragon sculptures. Locals flock here to pray, while people wait in line to get a blessing or take part in open lectures held by various Confucian scholars. The busy temple has its own subway station, and no burning of incense is allowed inside the temple.

  • an old Buddhish Temple that was built 50 years ago, Nowadays it's the landmark in Taipei City for the overseas tourist to travel in Taipei. Also, many local citizens come for preying in the special days, such as lunar Chinese year, even in this month some people come for preying in good health, in good wealth..... How about you ?
  • One of our favorite places in Taiwan. It reminds me of my childhood, the smell of incense burning and the image of worshippers praying. Temple's east entrance / exit is fully handicap / stroller / cart accessible. On the lunar calendar, 1st and 15th can be very busy, plan your visit accordingly. There are water fountains for drinking - and faucets for washing hands or fruits to be used for offerings. Don't miss the full Koi ponds. * Face mask required for entry and temperature checked. ----- Insta @jadele.lv
