Unique faith building

Longshan Temple is the most famous temple in the Taipei area. This is the place to pray to Guanyin and the center of faith for the locals. Regardless of age, when people have doubts about life, they will come here to ask about their fortunes, including health, work, or marriage.

In the southern part of Taiwan, Lotus Pond is a famous scenic spot in Kaohsiung, which has a special building, “Dragon and Tiger Pagodas”. People believe that entering from the dragon tower & exiting from the tiger tower can bring health and peace.
