There is so much treasure here that most of them are locked inside the vault inside the mountain seen behind the museum. It's said that to see all the treasures, one has to go to the museum every day for four years...or some ridiculous amount of time like that.
Taiwan was full of Chiang Kai Shek memorials, gardens, monuments...
So called the father of the country resides everywhere.
The one with blue roof is Chiang Kai Shek memorial with his bronze statue inside.
|Chiang Kai Shek Memorial|
|The night market in Taipei|
Buddhist temples are often seen in the city.
The temples contain tribute to Buddha as well as other gods. They are very different from the Buddhism seen in Japan or Korea. Their temples are very elaborate with decorations on the rooftops and they believe in other gods besides Buddha.
