A really old templeThis is a real old temple. It has several parts and it is worth visiting. It is loacated at a busy street, but inside you will notice the holy atmosphere. Nice to spend half an hour or so.

Interesting templeThis temple is quite interesting but very similar to the casual visitor to the many other temples in the city. It appeared to be poplar with local worshippers.
Tiny temple with big storiesOut of all the temples in Taiwan, this was the first that made me feel deeply connected to the local history and geography. It's located in the old Five Channels district, and in front of the temple, you can see where the water used to run through this area, and be transported back in time when the Chinese officials set foot on this strange land and felt so relieved that they made it. Inside the temple, we can see the Thunder God and Lightning Goddess, and there's an interesting folktale about their relationship. All in all, it's it's a must-see destination for those who want to learn about the city's roots.
Only one temple worship for god of windThe temple was built in Ching Dynasty and bulit the pavillion later on for welcoming governors from China. The light of this temple was re-designed few years ago as in-direct form which is more friendly to night visitor and neighborhood. The only specialty of this temple is the one and only temple worship for god of wind.
