One can easily tire of touring temples in Taiwan, and after a while they can all start to look the same. Temples of the various religions often have a similar architecture and style. For me, much of the interest in exploring them was in the many little details. The Buddhist and Taoist temples were sometimes overwhelming with their over-the-top styling but the Confucius temples were no less compelling for their starkness. Here’s a selection of images highlighting some of the details of temple architecture that I found interesting.
