Beautiful authentic temple, famous for the God of love who brings couples together. One of the main landmark in Taipei. They have very clear signs for foreigners and also volunteers that well explain you the whole praying flow/procedure.

The temple has been transformed itself from Taoist Pacifier Temple of the past to a "Marriage Relations" Seeker's Temple. Thus, temple has more young female worshipers nowadays than the senior to pray for their relations, especially for the eternal love and romance. For reasons unknown, there are more female Japanese and Hong Kong Chinese worshipers nowadays than domestic Taiwanese Chinese worshippers, especially in weekdays. Taipei City Hall tries to promote the temple as part of tour point for great Di-Hua Street Commercial-cultural district, which includes traditional Chinese herb medicine and groceries sales, fabrics stores, and other traditional cultural events. However, street lighting and store scenic at night from nearby subway or bus station to the temple and nearby stores area is relatively dark, although low crime rates for the area. For temple itself, clergies and volunteers do provide worship procedure assistance, free of charge, and can command simple English and Japanese language communications. The temple provides free warm tea to visitors.
