Posted Date:2018/04/25 1417

Introduction

Anchor
Lecheng Temple is a prestigious Hanxi Mazu temple built during the rule of Qianlong Emperor of the Qing Dynasty. The 200-year-old temple is a municipal historic site designated by the city government. The rich history can be deduced from the sophisticated details of the architecture and interior decor.
Lecheng Temple was initially founded by ancestor Lin who had obtained success in early reclamation of Taiwan. Later on as villages were established, the  expansion of the temple is like a chronology of the early settlements and development in Taichung.
Lecheng Temple has many pious followers. The temple often hosts blessing ceremonies. The main deity of the temple is Yue Lao, the god of marriage. There is a wall full of wedding invitations in the Hall of Yue Lao, all of which are proof of Yue Lao’s efficacious charm. People come to pray for good marriage, relationship and popularity.

    台中に滞在中、街を散策中にこちらのお寺へ立ち寄りました。台中駅の東側に位置していて駅からは少し離れますが、訪れてみると台湾らしい鮮やかで立派な寺院の造りが優雅で目を惹きました。地元の方が多く訪れていました。

    由於感情已經空窗多時,在朋友的推薦下來到台中相當有名的媽祖廟,其中有月老神君。聽說是非常靈驗,也希望能在能在之後有好消息!
