Temples & Shrines
Taipei is rich in beautiful, ornate temples housing Buddhist, Taoist, and Chinese folk religion deities. Besides large temples, small outdoor shrines to local deities are very common and can be spotted on road sides, parks, and neighborhoods. Many homes and businesses may also set up small shrines of candles, figurines, and offerings. Some restaurants, for example, may set up a small shrine to the Kitchen god for success in a restaurant business.
Please note: We are always trying to feature the latest of beautiful Taipei, so please feel welcome to come back and view what’s new.
