Taiwan – Temples, Gods and Pagodas – Photos

Opher's World

Taiwan is a country that is ravaged by earthquakes so most of the old temples have been raised to the ground. There were still some to be found. They are, of course, very much in the old Chines style.

Out on the lake they have constructed new pagodas and enormous statues of the gods which are so gaudy that they look more like Disneyland than anything else to my Western eyes.
