Introduction

Linji Huguo Chan Temple is near MRT Yuanshan Station.  With the Keelung River flowing by and the mountains in the distance, the atmosphere is quite tranquil.

Linji Huguo Chan Temple is a typical example of the Edo period architecture. Built in the Japanese colonial period, the Temple is a great work of wooden building as it is one of the first buildings of its kind constructed in that period. The old Sanmon (major gate), the Main Hall, Large Whetstone, Grave of its founder, and Stone Statues of Buddha all survive intact and hold historic value.

    A spectacular wooden Main Hall surrounded by vulgar yellow-painted concrete buildings

    2020-11

    Fifty meters from the MRT Yuanshan Station, just near by the Taipei Expo Park. Surrounded by modern concrete buildings, so is easily missed by the tourists. Built in 1911 during the Japanese colonized period, this temple is a branch of Japanese Rinzai Zen Buddhism. It remind me of my visit to the Linji Temple at Zhengding County in Hebei province (湖北正定) in 2007. It is the birth place of the Línjì school (臨濟宗, a school of Chan Buddhism established in 854 AD). The Linji school was later introduced to Japan and known as Rinzai. The main hall is a wooden temple with Chinese Northern and Southern Dynasties’ architectural style. It is now approved by the government as a Taipei City Heritage. The architecture is so spectacular. Unfortunately, the main gate and surrounding concrete wing buildings are painted with yellow and red. Dissonant and vulgar!!

    圓山駅からすぐのところにある寺院。石碑には岐阜県と書かれていて、 日本統治時代に建てられた寺院なんだと気づきました。

    妙心寺派の台湾別院・・・

    2017-10

    台北捷運淡水線圓山駅から徒歩5分程のところに、臨済宗妙心寺派の台湾別院として建立され、台北市の「市指定古蹟」に指定されているようです。その山門、大雄宝殿 はすべて江戸時代の仏寺の典型建築様式で建立されていました。台北に日本の禅寺があったのには驚きました。
