It is not a very big temple but nice architecture. One thing is Taiwan's temples have very very impressive architecture and structure. Amazing. You can donate a little blessing to the temple and take a pack of rice, amulet and a yellow paper for blessing.

This temple is old but has beautiful architecture. Worth a visit if you are in Changhua. The ceiling of the entrance area is particularly fascinating. There are numerous seafood restaurants and cake shops in the nearby streets.

Though under some roof construction during our last visit, this beautiful temple is an excellent example of a Mazu place of worship. It is very colorful and enormous.
