Wenwu Temple

I've been traveling through the rural area of Taiwan the past few days as a wrap up to the program I'm in visiting really beautiful places and I have concluded that even though Taiwan and my Asian heritage is absolutely breathtaking, I am a New York brat through and through and I miss home so much. Being homesick sucks, though I have beautiful temples and ceilings to distract me. A lot can be said about the buildings I've been visiting the past few days, but pictures speak louder than words, and I'd rather watch shows on Hulu anyway. Here are some pictures from Wenwu Temple, which is on Sun Moon Lake. I beg that you click the photos to view them in their full glory. I think any outfit I could possibly post wouldn't even compare, so I'm not going to bother. 







Every temple I've visited thus far has been  entirely hand-painted and hand carved and they didn't use nails to build it. I didn't know people's jaws could actually drop, but my jaw hurts from dropping so much. 


Wenwu Temple was my favorite one to visit so far, though I visited another one today that brought me to tears. They didn't allow photos in the one I visited today anyway so I wouldn't be able to share regardless. Anyway, I hope you are well and happy and whole. Much love.

Taiwan has some of the best temples, ever. I just need to go to this one if I ever go there again. Anyway, I really understand what you mean about being homesick. I was away for a month this summer, and even though it was really fun I really missed New York.

I remember seeing the same temple when I went - your photos are stunning! I'm half Han Taiwanese, half Brummie and I just couldn't feel at home there either, no matter how much I loved it. It's like a different world!

Wow these are beautiful. I need to get traveling but I too am a big brat and I like my American comforts.

It's like some kind of flashback from a cooler era. Overwhelming in photos, I probably would have fainted if I'd been there.
Your commercial made me jump out of my chair, btw.

may i ask, what kind of camera do you use for these snap shots in time?

i am fond of this type of visual archaeology of pattern, cosmology, and spirituality.
