We rented quad bikes to ride along the beach in Nanliao, and this was the sign above one of the bike shops.
Did you know there are more than two Statue of Liberty…s… Liberties?… Statues of Liberty… whatever? My favorite temple in Hsinchu has a large area full of random statues.
Statues are literally scattered all over the property – big, small, broken, and, well, some are just odd.
In each of these alcoves is another statue.
An archway on the grounds
Some of the rocks had carvings on them, and because of Taiwan’s climate, most are covered in moss. Photo by Sabrina.
Check out the expression on the lion’s face.
Walking down to the archway from earlier – statues on the left, pagodas and dry water feature on the right.
Most temples have these brooms. As an overweight American, I didn’t dare sit on that bench.
The other side of the arches. I’m telling you, the grounds are sprawling and tiered down along the hill. And every time I visit, there’s something new to see.
