Hsing Tian Kong (Chinese: 行天宮; pinyin: Xíngtiān Gōng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Hêng-thian-kiong; also Xingtian Temple or Xingtian Gong) is a popular temple in Zhongshan District, Taipei, Taiwan. This temple is devoted to Guan Yu, the patron god of businessmen, and is relatively recent in origin. This temple is situated on a street corner near the center of the city. Sculptures of dragons feature prominently in this temple's design. It covers over 7,000 square meters.
It was constructed in 1967. In 2014, in an effort to reduce particle air pollution, the temple became the first in Taiwan to ban the burning of incense.
