Kailong Temple(開隆宮)

Traveler rating:4 3 Reviews 4.6




Kailong Temple is the temple with the longest history of worship of the Seven Star Goddess(七星娘娘) in Taiwan. Its images of female kindness are believed to give blessings to children, and its seven fairy images are interpreted as bringing good fortune in romance and relationships. Kailong Temple(開隆宮) is well known in Taiwan for its coming of age ceremony, where every Qixi Festival (七夕Chinese Valentine’s Day) parents from all over Taiwan bring their 16 year old children to participate in the incredible adulthood ceremony. This rite of passage is an important Qixi activity in the district, and is now even known abroad; for the past few years many Japanese parents have brought their children to take part.

    Temple to pray for kiddos

    Traveler rating:4 2018-12

    While there is a temple for babies, both born and unborn, and pregnant women, this temple is for kids when they are in their early teens. Want a kid to avoid the trials and tribulations that no one should have to endure? Come here? We saw artist renditions of kids being supported in the first room. Like almost all temples in this town, this one sports a bathroom that a movie house would be proud of. On our last day of temple touring, we visited this one using the LP directions of which lane to go down. There were two cool coffee shops nearby in case you're in need of a recharge.
