Lecheng Temple
Lecheng Temple is located in North District of Taichung City. The main deity it enshrines is Mazu, and the Temple is hence also known as “Hanzi Mazu Temple”. Due to its long history, which dates back to 1753, it is also a cultural heritage of Taichung, and designated as a third- grade historic monument.  During the 921 Earthquake, the Temple’s stone pillars shifted and part of the roof fell. With government subsidies, restoration was completed in 2003, and a 40 meter tall memorial archway was erected.  The Temple’s God of Love is known for answering prayers, so it has attracted many worshippers in recent years.  One of the highlights of Lecheng Temple is the many delicacies along the streets by the Temple, which include meatballs, rice cake, diaphragm soup, etc.

A brand new building, I-plaza, was opened here in 2017, making the place even more vibrant. If you’ve not been here for a long time, you’re sure to be amazed by the shopping district’s huge changes in the past few years.  Yizhong Street is a bustling area from day to night, satisfying your craving for breakfast, night snacks, and beverages.
