Xingtian Temple

Taoist Temple in Zhongshan & Datong

Though established in just 1967, Xingtian Temple is considered especially efficacious as temples go, and it has emerged as one of the city's top centres of folk worship. While a progressive moral system is taught here, with a deemphasis on the literal meaning of ritual, you'll find all manner of fortune telling, including a subterranean 'Street of Fortune Telling' under Minquan E Rd.

The temple hit the headlines in 2014 when it banned visitors from burning incense because of the damage the smoke can do to people's health.
