ä¿å®‰å®® Pao-an Temple is by far the best temple I have visited in Taipei. It had such beautiful design, painting & carvings in the building. People do go there for a certain purpose & is one of the leading religious places.
Construction of the taoist temple started in 1805 and took 25 long years to be built. Emperor Pao-Shen is the focus of worship at ä¿å®‰å®® Pao-an Temple. He was a popular & highly skilled doctor when he was still alive. People go to ä¿å®‰å®® Pao-an Temple to seek for good health.
Other notables are the ff.:

The goddess of birth that reside in the bell tower has 12 female aides that help assist childbirth during a given month. This is very popular for pregnant women.
