This temple is a bit difficult to find in the heart of the market. The temples is really small and popular with local business people who work in the area. It is very cluttered and dense inside. It does add some culture to the night market if you see it in the evening but dont go out of your way.

The Songshan Temple carries many traditions like the burning of incense, burning money, lighting candles, and making food offerings. It is a very intricate temple, as you walk to different levels and through different halls. It is gorgeous and an important part of the local residents' lives. The people on site are very friendly and helpful. It is right next... More

The Songshan Fu De Temple is a particularly beautiful place to visit. There is no admission fee and tourists are permitted to walk freely around the premises. There are stairs at the rear of the temple that allow access to three levels of the building. It is easy to reach. It is next to the Raohe Night Market and across... More

The temple is very beautiful and the architecture is very attractive. By visiting there, you can see traditional Taiwanese culture, especially about the religion.

When I went to Raohe night market I wasn't expecting to find this beautiful temple at the entrance to the market. The interiors has intricate gold carvings and several Images. This is one of a few temples that I consider beautiful.

I think could be my favorite temple. To be fair, I went at night and the lighting is beautiful. In addition, there were people chanting in ceremony while I was there, as well. However, the temple itself is covered in detailed ceramic reliefs and the view form the top is lovely. In addition, there is a very large night market... More

Beautiful temple, magically lit at night. Wonderful craftsmanship. Located just besides the entry to the Raohe night market, it is a nice temple to stop by before entering the market.

When the lights are shining bright, and the night is alive, find a good spot and take a good shot. There is a night market just next to the temple. Very close to MRT, 3 min walks.
