Coming out of the Taroko gorge we found ourselves up in the mountains. There was a pagoda and temple up in the mountains with a large gold or white buddha.

There aren’t too many old structures in Taiwan. It is a country ravaged by earthquakes. All the old buildings have been flattened.
This big temple complex is quite new. I just love the colours and vitality.
