The facade of Lungshan Temple was decorative

After watching the serious worshippers, I went through the main entrance. And I looked at the decorative gate of the temple. This Lungshan Temple was originally built in the 18th century. And it was renovated during the Japanese rule. However, the renovation was done in a complete Chinese manner. It was said the craftsmen were brought on board from Quanzhou, the mainland of China. Therefore, I couldn't feel the Japonism at all. Although the Japanese authorities built the Shinto shrine in Taipei, they didn't think of doing editing of this traditional temple.

Looking up the massive facade for a while. Many decorations were seen on the gate. The more I saw, the more I felt the gaiety. And the feeling was what I couldn't feel when I visited temples in Japan.
