Zhaoying Temple昭應宮


Zhaoying Temple is Yilan’s only site qualified as tier 3 on Taiwan’s national list of historical locations. It was built during the Jiaqing era in the Qing dynasty, and served as the center point of Gemalan Subprefecture. Throughout Zhaoying Temple’s 200 years of history, it has always been a hub for religious activities and other gatherings, as well as the only Mazu temple in Taiwan facing mountains.      
Zhaoying Temple昭應宮
Zhaoying Temple is mainly dedicated to Mazu. When it was first built, the Temple faced the ocean so that it could protect those on the sea. The story is that later on a feng shui master determined that if the Temple faced west, local academic good fortune would increase. So Zhaoying Temple was converted into a three-hall layout during the Daoguang era in the Qing dynasty, and sure enough several scholars were able to pass the imperial exam.  

Although Zhaoying Temple has undergone many repairs over the years, its layout and wooden and stone sculptures remain preserved. Impressive dragon pillars, stone lions, and plaques from the Daoguang era cement the Temple as a highly revered sanctuary.

Zhaoying Temple昭應宮
Other than Mazu, Zhaoying Temple enshrines three heroes, also known as the Sanlaoda, who helped develop Yilan during the Qing dynasty: Yang-Ting Li, Zhai Gan, and Chen Zhen. History buffs and those interested in temple culture should definitely take a walk around Zhaoying Temple to absorb the peace and knowledge.

    It is a temple, dedicated to Mazu. A green statue of god, or that of a guard, on the right hand side of the entrance is remarkable.
