Granite from China shipped over to build this temple. It’s situated on the West side of the island so doesn’t suffer from any earthquake damage that the temples on the East are potentially subjected to.
Loving the design of these temples, they are all so peaceful.
I think this was a good time to come to Taiwan, the weather is warm, there’s hardly any other tourists so you get the attractions to yourself (which makes for good pictures with no one photo bombing!) and all the Chinese New Years decorations makes it feel special.
We had lunch in a little restaurant next to the temple (the cheapest meal I’ve had since being in Taiwan!) it seemed to specialize in seafood, which I do not. So I ordered the only thing that wasn’t sea based on the menu, Pork. It came with fish!
