Taiwan ancestral templeDa Guanyin Temple(【台疆祖廟】大觀音亭 )

Traveler rating:4 12 Reviews

Sunday:05:00 – 21:00





Da Guanyin Temple(大觀音亭) was built in 1678 and was the first temple in Taiwan to enshrine Guanyin Bodhisattva. Xingji Temple, which enshrines Bao Sheng Da Di (BaoshengEmperor) and was built in 1679, is on the same site, creating the unusual situation of Buddhist and Daoist temples together. Entering Da Guanyin Temple, the solemn and imposing Two Generals Heng and Ha(哼哈二將) can be seen on each side; Guanyin Bodhisattva, wearing a serene expression, is in the middle, giving people a feeling of peace and harmony. Seeking the help of the God of Marriage (月老)has become popular in Tainan in recent years, and the God of Marriage enshrined in Da Guanyin Temple receives many people seeking help in finding a wife/husband. The statue of the God of Marriage in the temple has the biggest mouth of the four God of Marriage statues in Tainan; believers say the big mouth helps him be heard far and wide; he is the most successful at matchmaking and to date has matched a large number of men and women, and is nicknamed the “matchmaking Guanyin”. Aside from Guanyin Pusa, the God of Marriage is also a “star” god of Da Guanyin Temple.

    ...with a lot of different names for the place I think. This was my first stop on my way to Chihkan Tower after getting off the train. From what I'm reading, Xingi Temple is dedicated to worship an emperor named Wu Tao who also was a doctor. The attached Guanyin Pavilion is dedicated to a Buddha of the same name and is described as an "Ancestral Temple of Taiwan." Whatever is going on here and the deeper meaning behind it, the place really has a lot of visually stunning architectural features and objects to see. There are a couple signs in English that can give a good description about it all, and an English brochure is also available.

    台南到着が日没後になった為、分かり易い場所に立つ同寺院に台南駅から徒歩で向かってみました。 日中とは異なり電飾で煌びやかになり、寧ろ賑やかに思える程でした。 地元の方を中心に参拝者も多く見受けられました。 猶、道路側は駐車場となっており、一段上がった場所に2つの寺院が並立していました。

    一座很有歷史的廟,大觀音亭供奉觀音佛祖,旁邊有據說很靈驗的月老,單身者可以去求姻緣,我也求了,正等靈驗中(笑) 興濟宮供奉保生大帝,這兒的金紙和貢糕是自己投錢,還有平安水………距離火車站非常近,可在這裡...
