Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We took the metro and walked here from the nearest station. The temple was rather quiet when we came, unlike the nearby Bao An temple which was crowded.

    This is a great place for worship and I love the beautiful architecture! It isn't too crowded if you visit on a weekday.

    The temple may be small but it is a very important temple to the locals. When we dropped by, it was the fifteenth on the lunar calendar and the temple was teeming with temple goers. The temple also offered free blessed tea (wolfberries & red dates) for visitors on one side. Best time to visit is probably during May 13th (lunar calendar) which is the City God's Birthday.

    This is a lovely museum in a heritage building. Dating back to 1962, this building was formerly a Pharmacy. After being left unused for a long period, It was purchased by Ms. K.C. Chen (Eva Tan, 陳國慈律師), and was revitalized into a museum and cultural center.

    It is a modernist style building, with terrazzo as the main construction method in the interior. There are exquisite terrazzo pictures on the floors. For example, "ginseng plants" on the first floor, "grapes" on the second floor, … etc.

    The exhibition's themes cover the fields of "traditional living culture" and "old buildings". The current exhibitions are “Pickling and Marinating” and “Year of the Tiger”. In addition to exhibitions, the museum also holds lectures and seminars to let people know about traditional life and culture.

    Free admission. The volunteers are attentive and top-notch.

    Datong Old Street is an intact building dating from the early days of settlement in Taiwan. The historical buildings are quite picturesque. There are also a variety of shops selling souvenirs and day-to-day necessities and oddities from days gone by.

    This is one of the oldest temples in Taipei. It was first established in 1864 (3rd year of Emperor Tongzhi, Ching Dynasty). The current building was built in 1914, and was refurbished in 1994.

    The main God in the temple is Mazu. It also worships Guanyin Bodhisattva, Emperor Guan (God of war), Emperor Wenchang (God of culture and literature), Goddess of child birth, Lord of the soil,... etc

    On the famous food street in front of the temple, there are over ten stalls of traditional food. You can try the old good taste and feel the style of old Taipei.

    The East Gate ("Dong Men") is in a significant area of Taipei, near the Presidential Offices and other significant buildings and roadways. Taipei once had city walls, but they were demolished during the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). Several gates, including the East Gate, remain.

    This building dates from the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). This attractive building once housed the office of the governor of Taiwan's railways. As is usual for civic buildings from the Japanese era, the building is finished to a very high standard. It's ell worth a look.

    Interesting building. It is an original (at least partly) of a real house combining living quarters for a tea producing family and its tea factory. On three stories with an open terrace. I enjoyed the visit and a nice cup of tea.

    The Taiwan New Cultural Movement was a social, cultural and political movement that aimed to provide a counterweight to Japanese rule during the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). The New Cultural Movement was suppressed by the Japanese authorities, and many participants were jailed. The Taiwan New Cultural Movement Memorial Hall aims to commemorate those brave people who stood up for themselves. The Memorial Hall was once a Japanese police station.
