There are many temples surrounding Luzhou district. Baoyo Temple is a wooden temple built during the early establishment of Luzhou. The annual Royal Chifuwangye tour and blessing activity are alive and boisterous with drums, while the Yonglian Temple worships the venerable South Sea Guanyin Buddha. It began as a modest monk house which grew into the resplendence of today. If you enjoy visiting relics, do not miss the Luzhou Li Family Historical House.

Cat Temple
Apr 2020 • Solo
Yi Tian Temple is kinda famous these years because of the cats here. It’s a local temple mostly gathered the local believers. A few years ago, the people who run the temple started to take care of the street cats, which isn’t seen often in Taiwanese religious culture. And it turns out good because of the cats, there are more and more visitors come now. The cats here are well-fed and be taken good care. They come to people and let people take photos and live their little life here freely.

Cat Temple (喵庙)
Sep 2018 • Couples
I chanced upon this place when reading some articles about cats (yes I love cats) and decided to put it in my 'to visit list'. I'm so glad I did visit this 'cat temple' when I visited Taipei. It's located in a residential area, not too far away from the MRT station. It's difficult to miss the temple as it stands out among other buildings. Be prepared to climb up long, steep stairs. While the cats were definitely main attractions, the temple is attractive in its own right - it is beautiful, clean and serene. I'm really happy to know that there's a temple that opens its doors to stray cats and there is actually a room in the back where temple attendants keep and take care of several other cats. They might even let you enter and play with the cats. The cats are well taken care of. The temple is dedicated to the goddess Matsu and there are also other idols present. The artworks are really impressive. If you have time or want to go somewhere off the beaten path where there's something cultural to do/see in the company of some lovely cats, why not visit this place?

Neighborhood Temple
Jan 2018 • Solo
Seek and he shall find... Rising like an island on a crowded neighborhood street is this magnificent temple. It’s steep staircase leads up into a highly decorated sanctuary - lots of bright colors, detailed carvings and the ubiquitous haze of incense smoke. As with many temples, there are plenty of food vendors who have set up shop at the temple’s entrance. It’s a little tricky to find, though. Take the MRT to the Sanhe Junior High School stop and walk two minutes to a small triangle-shaped park. From here the temple is about 150’ away down a narrow street.
