This temple is near to songshan station and Raohe night market. This is since 1753 which makes it 265 years already. The sculptures are very nice and it's 5 storeys high. Great place to visit and pray!

This is a really beautiful temple! It’s easy access at Songshan MRT. There is also a night market (Raohe market) just on the side of the temple that you can visit after the temple.

Nice temple for a short visit. Very beautiful building and decorations. Not as big as some other temples in Taipei but nice anyways. Near the metro and close to the raohe market as well.

Just outside the Raohe night market arch, this temple boasts of elaborate wall sculptures so prepare to take some snaps! After visiting, swing by the market and try the yummy Taiwanese delicacies like the meat buns everyone's lining up for.
