Introduce

Chongqing Temple has a long history, dating back to 1778. Located in a narrow lane behind the National Museum of Taiwan Literature, it enshrines Guanyin Bodhisattva. The temple was moved to its current site in 1916. Despite being relocated and damaged by US bombing in World War II, it is still solemn and imposing. The murals and door gods of the temple were all painted by master Pan Li-shui, with the lifelike Two Generals Hēng and Hā(哼哈二將)” and Two Arhats Subdue the Dragon and Tame the Tiger murals(降龍伏虎羅漢壁畫) especially notable.The temple’s most popular god is Yue Lao, the Old Man Under the Moon (God of Marriage); there is a vinegar bottle in front of his statue; it is said when a couple are having problems in their relationship, if they shake the bottle and sincerely pray to Yue Lao under the Moon and Guanyin Bodhisattva they can save their relationship.
