Features

Also referred to as Dongyue Temple or Yuedi Temple, Tainan's Dongyue Hall has a layout consisting in three central structures, with Dongyue Taishan Tianqi Rensheng Emperor (Great Emperor of Mt. Taishan) enshrined in the front hall, the Buddhist bodhisattva Dizang (Kṣitigarbha) enshrined in the central hall, and Fengdu Dadi (Great Emperor Fengdu) enshrined in the rear hall. It is one of the oldest temples dedicated to the mountain god of Mt. Taishan. Dongyue Hall has always been a site bustling with numerous worshipers because in Taiwanese folk religion, the mountain god of Mt. Taishan is a deity in charge of the underworld, with authority over people's lives and the souls of the dead. Of the many ceremonies held at Dongyue Hall, the Da-cheng ritual is the most renowned. In Taiwanese folk religion, Da-cheng is a ceremony held to save the souls of the dead from the City of Innocent Deaths—a part of hell designed to house those who died with grievances that have yet to be redressed. The ritual reflects ideas of life and death from Han Chinese society in Taiwan. Dongyue Hall is situated in Tainan's West Central District—a hub of traditional crafts since the Qing era, populated with shops that sell incense, paper offerings, and divine statues. A visit to Dongyue Temple and the surrounding shops can foster understanding of Taiwanese folk religion and artisan crafts.
