Donglong Temple

Add to Favorites 9487

Dong-Gang Dong-Long Temple is a beloved temple which was founded in 1706. It has become one of the most popular temples in Taiwan, and is reckoned with the traditional ritual called "Ying-Wang"(Wangye Worshipping Ceremony).

"Ying-Wang"(Wangye Worshipping Ceremony) lasts for a week, and is held once every three years.

During "Ying-Wang"(Wangye Worshipping Ceremony), we carry out a series of ceremonies welcoming The Heaven's Envoy who is paying a visit to Donggang. The Heaven's Envoy is believed to give his blessings to the town and the people.

The ceremonies include the "Greeting", which is held on the beach. The "Fire Walking" is convinced to diminish people’s bad luck, and the "Parade" symbolizes The Heaven's Envoy patrolling around the villages. Last but not least, in "Farewell" we burn a wooden boat which means sending. The Heaven's Envoy back to heaven. This is usually the climax of "Ying-Wang"(Wangye Worshipping Ceremony).

The "Ying-Wang"(Wangye Worshipping Ceremony) festival will be held from October 28th to November 4th, 2018. Welcome friends from all over the world to come to Dong-Gang to experience the unique folk festivals.
