Without a doubt, Baoan Temple was the highlight of my trip to Taiwan. Originally, the group I was with had only intended to visit the nearby Confucius temple, but since Paoan Temple was so close-by we decided to visit it as well. I'm glad we...More

Temple is known for its fanciful woodwork and and spectular wooden dragons. The colors of the roofs were very interesting. This was a very serine, peaceful place. Not overly crowded. If you're in the area, it's worth going to if you haven't seen other Temples.

A smaller temple with a lot of people visiting. It's very nice and beautifully designed so I'd say it's worth a visit if you're in the area. Be respectful of the people who's there to do pray and worship.

This was an intere4sting temple and probably the best visited. Apart from the central temple there were numerous rooms around the perimeter all decorated differently and clearky used for worship and well as some for storage and vending. Worth a visit.

A beautifully decorated temple that has within its compound, quite a significant number of shrines. If devotees are required to go to them all, it would take some time. It is clearly however, very popular with the locals. Scenically, it is very impressive, and very...More

There are some accommodations close to this place but I must say i never tried them. There is metro station ( red line) Yuanshan aprox. 500 meters from the temple and also the bus stop like 200 meters from there.
