Photo Story : Taiwan – Part 1

If I remember correctly, a beautiful picture of Taroko Gorge was the reason to add Taipei in dream bucket list. Never thought the dream would come true so soon. Taiwan visit was a memorable treat to soul and will always be nearer to my heart..

Taiwan is a small island nation 180km east of China with modern cities, traditional Chinese temples, hot springs resorts and dramatic mountainous terrain. Taiwan is the most populous state that is not a member of the United Nations and the largest economy outside the UN.

When the itinerary read temple with famous Sun Moon lake in Taiwan, I was almost sure that I would not be interested in visiting that temple rather would spend time around lake. But being proved wrong always feels good. That bright, serene and picturesque temple is still fresh in my mind and therefore we will start Photo Story of Taiwan with Wan Wu Temple.

I will allow you to enjoy the visual treat rather than me inking words here….

The Wen Wu Temple (日月潭文武廟) is located on the perimeter of Sun Moon Lake in Yuchi Township, Nantou County, Taiwan

Previously, two temples were located on the coast of Sun Moon Lake. After the Japanese handed over Taiwan to the Republic of China in 1945, the government invested in developing tourism around the lake. Wen Wu temple was rebuilt again in 1969, increasing its size and constructing it in the Chinese palace style.

The temple consists of three halls. The first hall, located on the second floor of the front hall, is a shrine devoted to the First Ancestor Kaiji and the God of Literature. The central hall is devoted to Guan Gong, the God of War, and the warrior-God Yue Fei. The rear hall is dedicated to Confucius.

 

 

This layered and intricate temple is major attraction for the tourists.  As soon as you have passed through one temple, you enter another and you do not want to stop.

 

 

 

Every wall and colorful carvings on them are mind blowing proof of art. You will not be able to take off your eyes.

 

 

 

The Wall in the very back of the Temple is like a gate to another palace. I was in awe. Could not stop myself for picture.
