Features

Monga's Dizang Temple is a three-bay wide building with a single main structure located in Wanhua District, Taipei City. Also called ""King Dizang Temple"" by the locals, the temple is dedicated to the Buddhist bodhisattva Dizang (Kṣitigarbha) and also worships deities like Marshal Tian Du and Cheng Huang (also known as ""City God""). Buddhist ceremonies are held at Monga's Dizang Temple each year from the last day of the 6th lunar month to the 1st day of the 7th lunar month to initiate the area's Ghost Festival rites in the 7th lunar month. Each year, Monga's Dizang Temple celebrates the last day of the 7th lunar month as the birthday of bodhisattva Dizang, marking the end of a successful month of Ghost Festival rites. Construction of Monga's Dizang Temple—named for its worship of bodhisattva Dizang—began in the 25th year of Emperor Qianlong's reign in the Qing era (1760 CE). The main structure of the temple we see today was largely constructed as part of renovations done in the 18th year of Daoguang Emperor's reign in the Qing era (1838 CE). Though the temple subsequently underwent numerous renovations, its appearance remains largely unchanged. The large timber frame of the structure is well-preserved, and the building exemplifies the plain, clean, and austere architectural style of temples in the mid-Qing era.
