Ching Chung Koon is a traditional Taoist temple located in a tranquil setting with well manicured bonsai trees, bamboo and fish-ponds. The main temple is dedicated to Lu Sun Young, one of the eight immortals of Taoism who lived in the 8th century. Many people visit here to worship the Gods as well as remember their ancestors. The temple is divided into several houses where many dead peoples' bone ashes are permanently stored in special apartments with their picture, name, date of birth, date of death and place of origin. An annual Bonsai Festival is held here in spring.
Ching Chung Koon is directly opposite Ching Chung Light Rail station on line 505.
