Pao An Temple, while smaller than Long Shan temple is worth the visit. It is across the street from the Confucius temple so it makes for an excellent destination.

The ornateness makes the Confucius Temple next door seem rather restrained in comparison. This temple is definitely worth looking at, as it's different than many Buddhist or Confucius Temples one might see elsewhere in Taiwan. When I was there many people were there to buy incense sticks and make offerings/prayers. Across the street from this temple. separated by an ornate... More

We stumbled upon this temple quite by chance, and immediately fell in love with it. The atmosphere is serene yet very friendly to visitors. Watch out for the people throwing moonblocks and offering incense. If you have only one opportunity to visit, make sure that it's at night, in the dark when the temple is really magical.

I found this temple quieter and more intimate than Longshan on the south side of the city, good to see both and compare the two. Free entrance, and like Longshan, is heavily used by locals for praying and observing their religion. Just outside the front gates you will see people buying strips of paper and tossing them into the burning... More

Paoan temple is really a beautiful temple but not the most impressive one. But it's still nice to see it , all the temple are unique and have their particularities. One of the good point of this one is that it is really close to the Confucius. So you can see both the same time.

The temple was built more than two centuries ago and it has been the religious center of people living in northern part of old town Taipei. The temple ground is small but worshippers came in trove. One should sit alongside the plaza of the temple and watch how worshippers praying to the god of the temple: Pa San Ta Di... More

Beautiful spot, easily combined with Confucius temple across the road, and the garden. We visited at a quiet time, so were able to see things up close. Typical in style though, so wouldn't go out of my way, except for the Confucius temple right nearby.

This is a wonderful temple and recipient of UNESCO recognition for conservation. A few blocks walk from Yuanshan MRT station and next to the Confucius Temple I recommend it as a must see on any visit to Taipei. Besides Baosheng Dadi, Shengong, the God of Agriculture can be found at the rear of the Temple, as well as a side... More

A lovely temple that's very close to the Taipei Confucius Temple. Was pretty quiet when we visited at about five in the evening, and couldn't spot any English signs anywhere which was a pity as it would have been nice to read about history etc. Unless we missed them of course! Worth a quick look if you like temples.
