Xingtian Temple

Taipei

Parks, Temples and Gardens Sights and Highlights

One of the must-visits in Taiwan are the temples. But did you know that each temple was constructed with a purpose? There are those that are built in worship of gods who are famous in their own way.

For example, the Xingtian Temple in downtown Taipei is devoted to Guan Gong, a famous defied general in the Three Kingdoms period. Guan Gong is worshipped as the God of War and the patron saint of businessmen for his great skills at handling finances.

Dragons and phoenixes are seen at this temple. They're both auspicious in the Chinese culture. There are two gates - the Xun Gate (Wind Gate) and the Kun Gate (Earth Gate). Inscribed over the Xun Gate are the Chinese characters (Hehe) that signify 'bright' and magnificent. It encourages the faithful to never harbor bad thoughts. Yanyan are inscribed over the Kun Gate, which means towering and majestic. It aims to tell the faithful never to pray for selfish purposes.
