Wuji Tianyuan Temple is located at New Taipei City's Tamsui District, Shuiyuan Li, Beixin Road, Section 3, No. 36. It's original name was Shuiyantou. In 1971, Huang Akuang and 8 other individuals were in charge of the construction of Tianyuan Temple, Zhenyuan Temple, and Juyuan Temple. According to the instructions of the deities, a dragon well was carved out, known as "Eight Dragon's Pond Well". Tianyuan Temple is a Taoist temple, containing Wuji Zhenyuan Temple on the inside. Zhenyuan Temple imitates the circular style of China's Temple of Heaven, possessing 5 stories, and an outer diameter of 108  meters. Every hall worships Wuji's Buddhas, all carved out of various materials. In the courtyard are cherry blossom trees planted by hundreds of volunteers, and they consist of Taiwan's own native mountain cherries and Japan's Yoshino cherries. Every year from March until April, cherry blossoms bloom from the hillsides to the mountain tops. The pavilion at the observation deck overlooks all the cherry blossoms in the area and is a popular scenic attraction. During the cherry blossom season, traffic-controlling measures are implemented, and all vehicles are prohibited from entering the back of the mountain. From 8am to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays, the Tamsui District Office will provide a shuttle bus to the parking lot by Hongshulin MRT Station and Shuiyuan Elementary School to ferry passengers to Tianyuan Temple. In order to avoid traffic congestion, travelers are advised to take this instead.
