The new Jing Fu Temple has exquisite carvings, and most of the building materials for this structure were imported from China to ensure quality. Besides the dragon pillars in front of the main hall which are carved from a piece of diabase, the Door Gods on the temple doors are also carved from a block of red sandalwood. A highlight of the building is the large piece of “Dragon Parade” carving on the ceiling, which differs from common caisson ceilings. Worshippers can see the vivid “Green Dragon” dancing when they look up. The “Eighteen Arhats” carving on both sides of the main hall on the third story blend in with the landscape drawing, portraying the beauty of religious art.

Taoist temple is impressiveIing Fu Gong is not spectacular but it is an impressive neighbourhood temple. The addition of "gong" to the name indicates that it is a Taoist temple. It is spread over five levels. The carving is artistic and quite decorative. The temple has divination blocks -- toss the divination blocks, and the way they fall will indicate an answer to your question. The temple is not holy; just look at what the locals do and if they avoid an area, you would be best advised to do so, too. The Jing Fu Gong is in the Zhongshan area.

Small but beautiful.This temple is just down the road from Imperial Hotel. Its open till late so you could easily swing by anytime. We went in the evening was no one there and it is so beautiful with the lights on. If you are in the area be sure to pop by.

Jingfu Temple @Zhongshan... TaipeiWe found Jingfu temple while walking in Zhongshan neighborhood, as we were staying in the Aloft Zhongshan. This is a Taoist temple, built in the city, surrounded by many tall buildings. It's clear it is a definite neighborhood temple where locals flow in and out during the course of the day, but it does not seem crowded. Not many many tourists appear to visit, but we were clearly invited come in, explore the wonderful architecture and see the deities. Jingfu temple can be reached by rapid transit. It is about a 5 minute walk from the National Xiaoshan MRT Station. In spite of being a Taoist temple, it exhibitsthere strong Chinese characteristics. The entrance is quite beautiful, and a very large metal incinerator (for lack of a better word) greets the visitors. Here, offerings are burnt. The temple has grown over time, and the last refurbishment was in 2000. There are three floors. An elevator is available. The marble, the wood carvings, the beautiful orchids by the altars are stunning. The keepers motioned us to look around and take pictures. I wish I could speak the language and converse with the lovely temple keepers, and understand more about the temple.
Beautiful Chinese Design and ArchitectureThis is a sacred building for locals to worship and pray at. The building seems to address a number of uses. The architecture and adornment of the building is beautiful and the grounds are well cared for. Located in the heart of the city. Incense is burned, fruit is left for the deity, and colored red blocks are dropped as prayers. As the red blocks display themselves they give an answer to a prayer.
Très joli temple de quartierOn trouve de nombreux temples à Taipei, plus ou moins grands, plus ou moins fréquentés. Celui-ci n'est pas très grand et pas trop fréquenté. C'est apparemment un temple de quartier. Mais si on passe par là, il mérite de s'y arrêter.
