“Nice temple for a brief visit”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Nice place for a brief visit with the gondola. There's no entrance fee to the temple. Temple is quite beautiful and has an interesting "heaven" room. You can go to the second floor as well. In a clear day there's pleasant view to Taipei.

“My favourite temple in Taipei”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

it's one of the oldest temples in Taipei, founded in 1882. And one of the most beautiful for me.
It should be a part of the trip to the Maokong Mountain and is accessible via the Maokong Gondola Zhinan Temple Station. This is a good place to come to escape the city. Inside the temple, you can find your guardian by matching your year of birth with his year of death.Then, you can think of your wish.
It's also a terrific place to enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery around Taipei and the good view at the Taipei 101 (if it's not a foggy day).

Nice place to spend quality time. Very peaceful, calm, dvine...etc. Should have good amount of time in hand to spend at this place. Silence, greenry and cleanliness are the main things which will grab your attention.

“Great place to feel the craze during Chinese New Year”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

I used to visit the temple yearly during the Chinese Lunar New Year Period. Wow to the many visitors jamming the temple. Remember to toast for a break if you could borrow money from the god, however, better remember to return the borrowed money a year after. Try your luck, not all are given teh opportunity. Well, the Chinese God even understood any language, mean's you are free to use your native language too. :)
