Main complex Outer gate and main temple complex Bustling lantern lighting along the railway Lanterns in a temple. Taipei. Outer Gate Yam and sweet potato balls on a bed of shaved ice and sweet red beans. Chewy. What’s in there? Other than food, the stores sell trinkets of all types and sizes too. Worshipers throng the temple daily One.. two.. three Now I know how Nemo felt when he was lost.
