This is a temple outside of Taichung, about 30 minute drive from the city. It is quite a popular local temple. We went there on a weekday and it was quite busy during the lunch hour. It must be packed during the weekends and festivals.

It is not a big temple and is well over 200 hundred years old. You can probably walk around it in 10 minutes. The temple is very ornate. We were not there for long enough to take many photographs.
At each corner of the building, there are little open rooms for different kind of worships. This particular one below is the worship corner for academic achievement, which is probably the reason for the little kid about to give thanks.
Below the building is a museum. And there is also a golden statue of Buddha – all 120kg of weighty gold. The description says the gold was bought from the donations over the number years from pilgrims. No photos were allowed though.
