Disregard Google maps posting of open/closed timings: the temple is open before 6:00 p.m. I am here at noon on a Sunday. What starts at 6 are formal religious services and right now it is lively with tourists and worshippers. So, now that you're here, revel in the intricate sculptural imagery. While great care has been bestowed upon the inner sanctums, I look forward to continued colorful restorations of outer temple details exposed to the elements.
This temple is very ornate and very interesting with many different chambers in addition to the main one. In one corner of the grounds is a rather impressive waterfall . There are restrooms on site. The temple is adjacent to the subway station so it's easy to get to.
I really liked visiting here. There was some kind of service going on while I was there. Lots of singing and chanting by locals. They were burning incense also. The security guard was very nice and showed me where to get the incense stick. A visit while a service was not happening would not be as interesting. I spent about 20 minutes there.
Interesting place to visit with a lot of history. Carvings on walls and ceilings were hand crafted. Worshippers come to this temple to ask for wealth, good luck and even help with exam results. A very old temple.
If you have little time in Taipei, you must see this temple as this is one of the dainty temples in the city. Might get a bit crowded but still worth the visit. There's a mini waterfall inside the area as well. Check it out. :-D
