Hsing Tian Kong - Review

Also known as the Xingtian Temple, this popular temple is a very common location on the list of places to see in Taipei. Dedicated to the Guan Yu, this temple is primarily devoted to commerce. The deity himself was a patron god for businessmen.

Built in 1967, this relatively young temple is famous for its modern architecture reminiscent of old world styles. Dragons are a thematic centre of the design of the temple and the total area covers over seven thousand square meters.

Hsing Tian Kong, Taipei Reviews

  • God of Police, Gangsters, Prostitution, War and Literature. Home to Husband Gong, famously the God of Police, Gangsters, Prostitution, War and Literature, and protector of the Buddhist scriptures. Husband Gong is one cool dude. The connection, he swore an oath of brotherhood in a peach garden (see the novel Romance of the three kingdoms) and therefore is known for loyalty, the Police, Triads, War comrades are all brotherhoods, prostitution is a sisterhood, and Literature and Buddhism were latter bonuses to his illustrious career. This is one of the biggest temples in Taipei, so what it lacks in decoration or atmosphere, it makes up in size. Located just east of the red light district, a good place to go before visiting a lady of the night or scoring, but remember who he supports, so unless you know some scriptures and intend a night of naughtiness, don't forget to worship the other deities too. Take one stick of incense for each incense receptacle, introduce yourself to the deity, and pay respects by raising the incense to eye level and bowing 3 times before depositing your incense. In all, as a working rather than just a tourist temple, well worth a visit.

  • 台灣知名廟宇,不燒香與金紙 1. 恭奉關聖帝君為主神 2. 免費收驚 3. 精神導師玄空師父 4. 推行宗教、文化、教育、醫療、慈善五大志業

  • The most popular Taoist temple in Taipei City, worth a visit for tourists, but don't plan staying too long here because there's not much to do

  • They banned incense and paper money burning at this temple. A fantastic initiative that should be followed by all temples across Taiwan in an effort to improve the air quality and also to create a more healthy smoke-free environment for people that are doing their prayers.

  • Avoid going here on Sunday it's full of people which makes it hard to make good photos. If you do go try to go during the weekday and maybe in the afternoon it won't be as crowded.
