I have to rate this attraction high simply because of our experience. Previous reviewers are correct is saying the temple is small and nothing too remarkable to look at, but for us it was a magical experience. There is something so subtle and wonderful about the temple. We could definitely feel the energy within the biulding. Something pure and clean , that dressing it up as a tourist destination can not cover up. We met a Chinese speaking host of the temple and her genorosity of spirit was touching and inspiring. Again her energy was quiet and true. She gave us brochures, holy cards and a wonderful book of vegan recipes. Having just become vegan at the time we found the recipes wonderful. So simple clean and tasty. Having cooked most of the recipes successfuly it was time to share the cookbook with a friend but when we return to Taiwan in February I will definitely get another one. Items were free but an offering of money is polite but not expected. Their genorosity is from the heart of their belief and I suggest should you take anything please remember this and perhaps do the same. If you have a quiet reflective visit here you may well feel the energy that makes this unimposing temple so special to us. If you miss it that is ok too. I suggest you go with this in mind and allow yourself to simply absorb the purity of its energy.
