We went on a Tuesday morning, and there were local worshipers there in good numbers. A small temple that was destroyed at the most part in its many years, so that the parts a visitor will see are all the rebuilt parts. Looks and feel...More

It's a small temple in the middle of the old town which claims to be built in 1721 and is now ~300 years old. 這是一座位於老城中心的小寺廟,據說建於1721年,現在已有300多年的歷史。來自網站說"1721年(康熙六十年),台灣發生朱一貴事件,總兵藍廷珍奉命平亂,於是,藍廷珍親赴湄洲朝天閣,恭請聖母正身,隨船保護來台,登台後,將聖母駐奉祀於台南大天后宮,亂事平定後,再迎聖母奉祀於大墩庄店(今天台中市三民路一帶),定名為「藍興宮」媽祖廟。後因廟宇遭風雨剝蝕,地方人士募資改建,更名為「萬春宮」。"

Came across this gem in the middle of the hustle and bustle after lunch at the fried pork chop place nearby. It's been around since 1700s which makes it about 300 yearsof history !

Apparently, this temple is like 100 years old or so. It's quite nice, well taken care of and everything, but don't expect to see much different things if you've already been to Confucius temple

The building at the front is the new one. The original temple is at the back but was partially ruined by the earthquake in 2009.

This is one of the oldest temples in Taichung city. You can see people worship Mazu all the time every day. A small temple it is, but you can observe how people in Taiwan do the Mazu ceremony.
