Taichung Trip (III)

Taiwan is famous for its temples.. and among the deities worshiped, Mazu has the most followers and thus the most temples dedicated to her. And one of the more famous Mazu temples is the Zhen Lan Temple (鎮瀾宮) in Da Jia (大甲). You can check out their website here.

We didn't stay long at the temple, thus I didn't have the time to explore the temple thoroughly. Anyway, here's some photos of the temple.
always love the intricacies of temple cravings.
it was some occasion which I can't remember.

Other than the main temple building, there is a basement beside the temple with more wall cravings and a golden statue.. :)

Not far from this temple, there is another temple called Wen Chang Temple (aka Scholar Temple). We went in to take a look and pray for blessings too..

We then went walking around some interesting streets in Taichung city center. That's in the next post coming up.
