Taiwanese temple. They were serving a small cup of sweet tea at the front. This may be for visitors for prayer but the tea was accessible for anyone. This temple locates love Cupid so especially popular among young ladies and Japanese.

If you are wondering down Dihua street, then you will walk past this temple. It’s small but full of people offering prayers to the gods. Worth stopping and taking in the calmness and serenity of the building.
