San Xia Zushi Temple Taiwan

February 12, 2009

San Xia Zushi Temple Taipei or 三峽祖師爺廟 in Chinese. On our last real day of travelling around Taiwan we went to a temple on the far outskirts of Taipei. When I travelled to Taipei I asked where we could go to in Taipei not realising Taipei is not only a city but a really large county as well known as New Taipei City.

It took us around 2 hours to reach the temple through a combination of walking and catching a train and when we got there we were pretty hungry so we stopped off for a little bit of lunch then had a wander around the temple. One of my missions in Taiwan was to try to capture some 360-degree panoramics of some famous temples. In some temples, for example the Taipei Confucious Temple this was fine. That temple had some visitors but it wasn’t mentally busy. Other temples were absolutely mental even at 3/4am so it was challenging. San Xia Zushi had some people walking around but it was manageable and definitely worth it. The temple itself was really beautiful. The original site dates back to the 1700s but the last reconstruction dates back as recently as 1947 but retains many of the old features.

So that’s it for Taiwan. I took the panoramic digitally and most of the other photos were taken with my favourite lens,a Minolta Rokkor 58mm f1.2.
