Baoan Temple

Baoan Temple 保安宮

I visited the Dalongdong Baoan Temple 大龍峒保安宮 also known as the Taipei Baoan Temple 臺北保安宮 when I was in the Datong District in Taipei, Taiwan. The architecture and adornments are absolutely beautiful! The original temple which was a simple wooden structure was built in 1760. The temple was replaced in 1804, and through the centuries has been extended and improvements were made. In 1995, major restoration and repairs were made and that is how it stands today. Many of the original murals still adorn the walls of them temple, as well as the wood and stone carvings.

If you ever visit Taipei, Taiwan, the Baoan Temple is a must see!
