Introduce

Known as “Taiwan’s first temple,”Xiluo Temple is an extremely important temple in the Five Channels area. It was built by a man surnamed Kuo during the reign of the Kangxi Emperor of the Qing Dynasty in 1718. Enshrining GuangZeZun Wang (Guangze King) (廣澤尊王), it has a long history and attracts many worshippers. The temple houses many precious plaques, such as En You Quan Tai(Blessing all of Taiwan;恩祐全台)presented by the Xianfeng Emperor and Bao An Tian Xia (Protect the nation;保安天下), one presented by the Guangxu Emperor, another by President Chiang Ching-kuo. Xiluo maintains the century-old tradition of welcoming Tai Wang (GuangZeZun Wang; 廣澤尊王) and En Ma (Miao Ying Xian Fei; 妙應仙妃) every three years. The god palanquins are carried in and out of the water in a branch channel of Anping Harbor near Lin Mo-niang Park to show the power of the god when crossing the Taiwan Strait.
