Taiwan to develop religious map app catering to foreign netizens

Taipei, May 4 (CNA) The Ministry of the Interior will devise foreign-language versions of the Taiwan Religious Culture Map application to attract more tourists from Europe, the United States and South Asia, Minister of the Interior Yeh Jiunn-rong said on Thursday.

Yeh made the comments after receiving a briefing from the ministry's Department of Civil Affairs on a project launched in 2013 to create an environment to facilitate the development of Taiwan's creative culture industries, including religious tourism.

As part of the project, the ministry set up a Chinese-language website -- Taiwan Religious Culture Map -- which contains "Taiwan's Top 100 Religious Attractions," "Assets of Taiwan's Religious Culture" and "Temple Stays in Taiwan" as its main components.

The website went online in April 2015 and an application for mobile devices became available in 2016, according to the ministry.

The public can download the app for free use on Android and IOS devices and search for religious sites nearby and relevant information with the help of a smartphone's GPS function.

After "the Teenage Psychic", HBO Asia's first original series in Mandarin and its first filmed in Taiwan, made a splash in Asia following its release in late April, many people are interested in religious rituals and instruments shown in the series. As a result, there has been a spike in use of the ministry's National Religious Information Network, according to the ministry.

Yeh also said that to meet the needs of people from different religious and cultural backgrounds, particularly migrant workers in Taiwan, the ministry will continue to put post more religious information online.
