Zhulinshan Guanyin Temple features the traditional Minnan architectural style of China, and preserves the essence of Taiwanese folk art, in which insects, fish, birds and other animals as well as people and flowers are displayed in exquisite and elegant wood and stone carvings.
As you enter the main hall, don’t forget to look up at the magnificent beams that are covered with gold foil. The main hall’s giant pillars and altar are made of Taiwan cypress, and a total of 38 giant Taiwan cypress were used in the entire temple, including an approximately 15-meter- long beam that spans the main hall. The cypress logs are connected by mortise and tenon, showing the extraordinary skill of the craftsmen at that time.
Besides the beautiful architecture, the pink cherry and azalea blossoms in the spring make the Temple even more gorgeous. Take some nice photos in the courtyard decorated with Japanese stone lanterns and lion-dogs, and immerse yourself in a Japanese ambience without having to go abroad.
