Taoist Temple in Taipei

Taoist Temple in Taipei

Taipei is such a pleasant place. It is already creeping up my heart and becoming one of my favourite cities in Asia.

The food is delicious, the metro system excellent, the people super friendly and the sights a lot of fun. Here is our find while strolling along the streets.

 

We got off at Yuanshan Station to find an ATM machine, that would accept our credit card but as we passed Dehui Street, we stumbled upon this fascinating temple. The ATM was forgotten.

I have to smile when I see those modern bright digital displays, contrasting with traditional, old architecture.

After we walked out, it seemed like we had travelled back in time.
