Taipei2016Dec: Devotees praying in front of the main altar of Taipei Tian Hou temple in the heart of 西门町.

We actually stumbled upon this temple on our way to dinner.

Turned out it is one of the three great temples of the Bangka (Wanhua) District of 台北.

This 天后宫 is 270 years old although the current building was completed in 1959 after a fire.

The temple is devoted to 妈祖 and other deities.
