Running this blog has made one fact very clear. What's important to you about Taipei and Taiwan may be meaningless to another. The converse is also true.
The temple stood at the corner of DeHui Street and LinSen North Road. It was orange and directly east of the old President Hotel.
After pictures of it kept cropping up on other Taiwan blogs and websites, my interest was stirred. So, here are some pictures of it then, and how that corner looks now.

This is an excellent view looking down at the old temple beside the President Hotel.
This is a picture of the new temple on the corner. It was and still is called the Ching-Fu Temple. To see it in Mandarin context, click HERE
Victor W. Cheng is my unimpeachable source for this info. The President Hotel was also leveled and now a large office building stands at that same address on DeHui Street.
