Shanguang Temple in Xinbeitou 新北投善光寺

Anchor point

Introduction

Shanguang Temple located on the Hot Spring Street in Xinbeitou is different from ordinary temples which have a lot of decorations. The outlook of Shanguang Temple in Xinbeitou is very plain. Although it is not open to the public on weekdays, during the cherry blossom season every year, people can still see the blossoms of Taiwan cherry trees from the steps at the entrance of Shanguang Temple; therefore, it is one of the secret spots for watching cherry blossoms in Beitou. 

Shanguang Temple is a good spot to overlook the entire Beitou landscape. It is recommended to visit when you are in Beitou for a hot spring trip. 

Shanguang Temple is a place for Buddhist practice, so please remember to be quiet and pay attention to your manner. Please avoid disturbing the tranquility of the Temple.

    北投的制高景點

    2017-03

    路線輕鬆,適合中老年人踏青。 在寺埕上可眺望整個新北投。算是一個不錯的景點。 但要小心兩隻「山大王」的野狗,帶毛小孩去,小心不要被咬死。

    冬天賞櫻在地人私房小景點北投善光寺

    2016-07

    從銀光巷走到善光寺。 每次去新北投繞完溫泉路線大約在滿來拉麵那邊就結束,從來也沒有想要走上去的意思。這次微旅行我翻開了北投地圖,挑了名字很「亮」的「銀光巷」走走,這是附近居民的私房景點! 因為沒網路我手拿地圖也不知道距離大概多遠,走到一半本想放棄,後來發現聽起來很近的「巷底」是上次在旅遊書上寫的善光寺,最後默默爬了山,汗流浹背地直達山上的善光寺!幸好一路生態豐富,樹木高大替我檔了不少太陽,流水潺潺,蟲鳴鳥叫,各式各樣的蕨類蓬勃生長,是蕨類天堂。一路觀察生態,想起上次一個人也是跑去伯斯周邊不知名的國家公園步道的時光,有點懷念,就這樣我不知不覺也慢慢晃到巷底的善光寺。 善光寺建於1932年,原是日本佛教淨土宗的木造寺廟,是當時台灣日籍移民的信仰中心。寺廟入口有兩座石燈籠,以為來到日本! #意外發現入口就是上檔民視八點檔的取景地點耶 擴建的三層寶塔造型特殊,分冠以佛、寶、塔,最上層——佛,祀奉釋迦牟尼佛舍利。寶塔仿印度佛寺建築,風格獨特且強烈!寺廟位於高處,俯瞰美麗北投溫泉區,風光盡收眼底,讓我原本因為熱而雜亂的心情平復許多!不然木造寺廟本身有點空虛,都沒有人看起來也有點破爛,一個人來其實有點恐怖!建議冬天來這裡比較好,爬山不會大流汗,而且寺廟旁有種櫻花還能賞櫻喔!旅遊書的照片看起來很美! 善光寺為北投觀光地圖推薦景點,是不是該把寺廟附近整理一下!
