Returning to simplicity – Memories of Wangchia Temple Station

文字-A A +A

Temples are a cornerstone of faith in village life, connecting the hearts and minds of residents. Between Qiyan and Qilian metro stations on the Taipei to Tamsui line, there is a place called Zhen'an Temple where the five deities known as Wangyeh (Royal Lords) are worshipped. Before the metro was built, this temple was known as Wangchia Temple Station on the Tamsui railway line. Zhen'an Temple and Wangchia Temple Station have a long history and inseparable relationship.

 

Wangchia Temple Station was established by the Nationalist government to operate on the existing Tamsui railway line built during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan. The origin of the station name is based on the deities (Wangyeh) worshipped at Zhen'an Temple. However, due to a translation error, Wangye Temple was misrepresented as Wangchia Temple. At the time, Wangchia Temple Station was one of very few stations named after a temple.

 

Although Wangchia Temple Station is now only a distant memory to most people, Zhen'an Temple in Beitou is still as vibrant as ever, and Wangyeh continues to protect the local people. No doubt, the history of Wangchia Temple Station will continue to be passed down from generation to generation and remain an important part of people's life.

洗盡鉛華,王家廟站走入記憶

廟宇是村落的信仰中心,聯繫居民情感的地方,在台北淡水的奇岩站與唭哩岸站之間,有間祭祀王爺的鎮安宮,在捷運開通之前,這裡以前是台鐵淡水線的王家廟站,而鎮安宮與王家廟站之間有著密不可分的關係。

王家廟站是國民政府在日治時期的鐵道基礎上經營淡水線增設出的一站,而站名的由來是根據鎮安宮主祀王爺,但由於翻譯問題,王爺廟誤傳為王家廟,是當時少數以宮廟命名的站名。

儘管王家廟站已經走入人們的記憶之中,但北投鎮安宮卻屹立不搖,王爺依舊守護著居民,王家廟的歷史也會世世代代的傳承下去,保存在大家的心中。
