Ciyou Temple

Taoist Temple in Songshan

This 18th-century triple-tiered temple is dedicated to Matsu, the black-faced Chinese goddess of seafarers. It marks the start of the Raohe Street Night Market and is one of Taipei's busiest and most colourful temples. The rooftop jiǎnniàn (剪黏; mosaic-like decoration) is particularly vibrant.
