Just outside the Raohe night market arch, this temple boasts of elaborate wall sculptures so prepare to take some snaps! After visiting, swing by the market and try the yummy Taiwanese delicacies like the meat buns everyone's lining up for.

This temple is right outside the estern entrance to the YaoHe night market. So a good place to stroll after you had been stuffed with all the wonderful foods from the market. The night light adds dramatic effects to the fanciful creatures on top of the temple. Inside, all the decorations are amazing and beautiful.

This temple is reportedly more than 200 years old. It is so colorful and beautiful and well-maintained. Located near the Raohe Night Market, it is a very popular temple and was so full of people on Chinese New Year's day. The mosaic on the roof of the temple are simply beautiful.

It may have something to do with this temples decoration having something to do with wealth and longevity. It is an easy temple to find, and for the decorations alone,... More

This temple is a bit difficult to find in the heart of the market. The temples is really small and popular with local business people who work in the area. It is very cluttered and dense inside. It does add some culture to the night market if you see it in the evening but dont go out of your way.

I have not been in such an active temple before. Hundreds of locals worshiping mid day. Such a sense of community. People visiting and enjoying eachothers company. The building is beautiful and the active use adds to the vibrant of the place. The smell of incense and the spectacular of the offerings and the volume of people make it an... More

The Songshan Temple carries many traditions like the burning of incense, burning money, lighting candles, and making food offerings. It is a very intricate temple, as you walk to different levels and through different halls. It is gorgeous and an important part of the local residents' lives. The people on site are very friendly and helpful. It is right next... More

The Songshan Fu De Temple is a particularly beautiful place to visit. There is no admission fee and tourists are permitted to walk freely around the premises. There are stairs at the rear of the temple that allow access to three levels of the building. It is easy to reach. It is next to the Raohe Night Market and across... More

When I went to Raohe night market I wasn't expecting to find this beautiful temple at the entrance to the market. The interiors has intricate gold carvings and several Images. This is one of a few temples that I consider beautiful.
