Qingshan Temple

Home of the god King of Qingshan.

The small temple is completely surrounded by buildings on Guiyang St. and easy to miss. The three-hall design of the temple is richly ornamented with amazing workmanship of carved wood and stone.

It is a little weird to enter the temple and the first thing you meet are 4 large wooden male statues in golden costumes. However the temple is a hidden oasis in the busy Taipei and once you get use to the statues/gods the temple itself is really very unique and beautiful.
