November 17th, 2005 – by: portia
Guandu temple was originally built in the 17th century so it has a long history. But most of the buildings I saw were pretty new or new looking. The temple is situated near Tan-Shui River (the fresh water river). Some of the lower buildings did not impress me too much, especially the tunnel full of gaudy looking sculptures of various dieties, but luckily I did not stop there, and went up higher, the top temple was really beautifully constructed, and I took lots of pictures so you can see for yourself. On January 15 of the lunar calendar, this templ has a real popular lantern exhibit and is supposed to draw a huge crowd.
