The Basics

Many local Taiwanese visit the fully functioning temple to pray for health and wellness, particularly with pregnant women. Besides Paosheng, you’ll find a shrine to the goddess of birth with her 12 aides inside the temple bell tower. All the wood and stone used to build the temple were brought from China, and the structure exhibits many of the typical characteristics of Chinese temple architecture, like the wooden dragon pillars and colorful wooden carvings.

Many sightseeing tours of Taipei include a stop at the temple, and it’s also a stop on the hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus. If you want to ensure the temple is included in your itinerary, consider booking a private tour with your own dedicated guide.

Taipei’s Top Temples

Taipei is home to numerous temples, but there are two (besides Bao’an) that deserve a spot on any itinerary. Perhaps the most famous is the Longshan Temple, known for its traditional Taiwanese architecture. The Minnan-style Taipei Confucius Temple offers insight into the Confucius religion.
