Taiwan – Hsinchu Guandi Temple

Welcome back!!

Not far from the Hsinchu morning market, I found a temple; Hsinchu Guandi Temple or known as God of War temple . Built in 1776, this temple was noted for its refined ornamentation and inscriptions carved by local scholars on the temple pillars. This is just one of the God of War temples. There are others in Changhua, Lukang, and Hsinchuang, and Xingtian Temple in Taipei.
