Lecheng Temple

Posted Date:2018/04/25 1417


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. 


No.48, Hanxi St., East Dist., Taichung City
