Chih Nan Temple is the most famous temple in Taipei, WenShen. In morning, you can visit the gorgeous decorate in this temple. In night, the splendid night view of Taipei will make you impressive.

Georgous temple perched on the mountain
Jan 2020
it's one of the oldest temples in Taipei, founded in 1882. And one of the most beautiful for me.
It should be a part of the trip to the Maokong Mountain and is accessible via the Maokong Gondola Zhinan Temple Station. This is a good place to come to escape the city. Inside the temple, you can find your guardian by matching your year of birth with his year of death.Then, you can think of your wish.
It's also a terrific place to enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery around Taipei and the good view at the Taipei 101 (if it's not a foggy day).

Spectacular

Take the MTR to Taipei Zoo and then the Maokong gondola up the mountain to this beautiful temple. This temple is really spectacular both inside and out and is one of the biggest we visited in Taipei, there are some amazing views from up here too. Definately worth visiting.

Get out of this otherwise cosmopolitan city and experience the real Taiwan. Peaceful, meditative ... wonderful respite from a lively city

Our favorite temple
Oct 2019
Chih Nan Temple is incredible. Perched above the city with beautiful views and secluded enough that not many people are there at once, it is the perfect way to escape the city and surround yourself with the serene environment of a temple.

Should be the final stop for the gondola
May 2019 • Family
Zhinan Temple is a cliff side temple that was covered in scaffolding when we visited. Temples themselves weren’t anything special but the grounds offer a nice spot to gaze down at the city below while not dangling from the gondolas.

Plenty of local color
Feb 2019 • Friends
Huge Taoist temple complex with some lovely views of Taipei Basin. Extremely loud, lively and crowded at peak times and quite peaceful most weekdays. Area around the temple (which has many walking paths) is forested and quite lovely from April to November...a bit drab and drizzly during the winter months, though. There is a tourist aspect to this place, but almost entirely local tourists, so don't expect much English.

Not far from the gondola stop
Jan 2019 • Couples
Temple is a short walk from the gondola stop past a number of small food and souvenir stalls. Wasn’t at all busy when we were there. I thought other temples were more interesting.
