Shot at Ci You Temple in Taipei, Taiwan.
The entrance was decorated with many sculptures. This temple is dedicated to Mazu, the Chinese patron goddess who is said to protect fishermen and sailors. Although most of the people living in Taipei weren't engaged in the fishery industry, this temple seemed to be popular for the locals.
Some dragons were carved on the pillar. Dragon traditionally symbolizes potent and auspicious powers in Chinese culture. And some people were praying at the entrance while they had some incense sticks in their hands.
