In 1811, a terrible epidemic broke out in Taoyuan. People raised funds to build a temple hoping to cure with religious will. The construction was finalized in two years and the temple was named Jing Fu Gong. The temple structure was divided into three sections that are the front hall, middle hall and rear hall. The three plagues gifted to the temple at its opening ceremony are still in place today as proof of the temple’s significance to the locals.
Jing Fu Gong originally worships King Kai-Jang and Kuantan Marshal. Later on, buddhist gods, taoist gods, ancestral of various industries, Quanzhou god, Matsu and many other were included, demonstrating diversity in religions.
An annual pilgrim procession to Ren He Gong in Daxi and Wu Fu Gong in Nankan takes place on January 17th in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, attracting tens of thousands of followers. Celebration on King Kai-Jang’s birthday lasts ten days which include live drama performances and rituals starting on February 15th in the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
The more than 100-year old Jing Fu Gong possess highly precious artistic values in its architectural details. Its majestic jia-sse-chui design on the roof is rarely seen. What’s more, it’s incredible quantity and variety of Chi Tiger Arches can be found nowhere else in Taiwan. Intricate stone carvings, wood carvings and paintings inside the temple were all proud works of known masters which are just as marvelous as the ones in a famous foreign church.
This temple that the locals refer to as “major temple” is not only a religious center but a key pivot where urban development kicked off. Early development of Zhongzheng Road and Minsheng road started from Jing Fu Gong, then came villages and business districts in the surrounding areas. Having witnessed a century’s ups and downs, Jing Fu Gong is now the media that tells of the story of this land.

    A small temple of great majesty in the centre of a busy section of town. It is very beautiful with many intricate pieces and works on display. Staff most welcoming to this 5 level Temple--a must see.

    駅からまっすぐに中正路を進むと真っ正面に現れる立派なお寺。このお寺から二つの路に別れる感じで、また中正路が一本に戻ります、周辺には軽く食事ができるお店がたくさんあります。

    台湾鉄道桃園駅からは中正路を北に徒歩で10分強 かかります。おそらく桃園駅周辺ではもっとも立派で 派手なお寺で、敷地も結構ひろいです。待ちの中心 にあり、街の発展を見守ってきたお寺で、桃園では数 少ない観光スポットです。

    憩いの場

    喧騒の中にある憩いの場。 少しだけですが、ゆっくりできます。 せっかくなので、お祈りすることをオススメします。

    坐落於市中心的廟宇

    Traveler rating:3 2018-09

    從火車站前中正路直行300公尺,就會看到這座廟宇,因為就位在正路沖,所以醒目到你很容易找到,廟宇建築跟其他知名廟宇相比並無太大特色,惟香火還滿鼎盛的
