  • Very busy in the evening this temple is on the other hand almost deserted if you come early in the morning. A must-see at Sun Moon Lake.

  • Beautiful Taoist temple, rebuild not long ago. The temple is divided in mainly two parts, the front part dedicated to the god Guang Gong (or Guang Yu) and the second to Confucius.  more »

  • Great and beautiful Chinese temple walk through all levels by a lot of steps onthe top level have a very large and beautiful Stone gate and nice sculptures on the walls. Top view can see whole temple touch a fresh air. Nice for relaxing moment with beautiful view.
  • Been to many temples and I must confess Wenwu was definitely able to impress me. One could spend a lot of time just roaming through this place. Go to the sky deck for a spectacular view. Beautiful temple and be sure to come for the sunset. So beautiful!
