One of the nearest landmarks around Sun Moon Lake as you drive in from the freeway, it offers an beautiful view of the lake and a lot of interesting Chinese temple architecture. You may go down to the lake via 366 Year of steps. There is more parking up ahead. A good place to start your hike.

One of the many stops around the lake and in my opinion, definitely the best temple, perhaps one of the best in Taiwan. The building is beautiful with lots of information and beautiful writing on the walls, great carvings and architecture and the wonderful statues and fountains. Very different to the typical temples you will come across in Taiwan and... More

Very elaborate carvings on the walls. Nice temple to visit. You can time your visit with the round-the-lake bus timetable (it is not very frequent, about hourly).

You are going to see a lot of temples as you travel around Taiwan, so it's refreshing to come across one that's a little different. Quite popular with tourists, so expect some crowds when you visit. Lots of red and gold and many intricate carvings and statues to be found everywhere.

This is a very large temple celebrating Confucius. Lovely place to walk around and admire the ornate chinese temple, as well as the intricate marble carving on all the walls..... there is a guided tour as well as audio guided tour for different languages. It has a great view of the Sun Moon Lake from atop the temple.
