Temple dedicated to the agriculture!
Oct 2019
I found this temple very interesting! Tourist do not frequently visit this temple. We visited by accident. We took the metro. One of the stations is called Xiense temple; it called our attention and we stopped there. We walked for 10 minutes in an area that has mechanics workshops, and then turn right walking on a path that has several mosaics dedicated to crops and agriculture. They are interesting. We found the temple. The temple was empty. It was very colorful! The incense was burning! The roofs are beautiful! It was a mystical ambiance! We visited at night. We really liked it!

Friendly people!

Beautiful historical temple
May 2017 • Solo
Quite a distance (ten to fifteen minutes’ walk) from the MRT Xiense Temple Station of the Orange line.

It is a mixed Buddhist/Taoist temple, has a history of over 250 years. The temple is primarily devoted to the “God of agriculture (Shen Nong, 神農大帝) ”. Lots of other Buddhist deities and Taoist deities are also been worshiped.

Impressed with the beautiful architecture and craft. This attraction is suitable for believers, religion art/ craft lovers, and history buffs.

For a foreign tourist, there is no need to make a special trip there.
