But since it's close to the Confucius temple, it's worth crossing the road. A modern temple with an ancient spirit.

Stayed for a while to experience the mood at the temple and explored the place a bit. We found a library within the temple compound which is open to public. There are some relics belonging to the temple such as very old statue and items of worship are exhibited in the library. I can tell these items have been retired... More

I believe the temple is pronounced BaoAn in Chinese, but I could be wrong on this... Located next to the Confuscius Temple, it's worth visiting them together. It's not a big temple, and there were few people when we stopped by. Like most temples, it was rebuilt, and therefore looks quite nice. But since no one were around, I just... More

An interesting temple, but I've seen many temples and this was not particularly exciting. I wouldn't put it on the top of my list.

The changing of the guard, all done is slow motion, is very different and great to watch. Get to the railings on the second floor for the best view.

I loved every detail of this temple. The paintings are impressive as well as doors, columns and woodwork. There is a rooftop in the back that offers excellent views over the roof of the temple. Best temple we saw in taiwan.

I think there is a spelling error on the title of this as most description it should be Baoan Temple. This is worth a visit. If you are visiting the Confucious Temple, drop in to see this one which is around the corner from it. The architecture and carvings are amazing. It is aboit a 10 minute walk from the... More

Said to be one of the three major temples in Taipei, it is accessible by MRT - walkable distance from the Yuanshan station of the Tamshui/Red line. It is well patronized by locals who come to pray and ask for blessing at altars serving different Gods and Goddesses. The architecture of this over 200 years old temple is worth a... More
