Sun Moon Lake & Wen Wu Temple of Taichung

Date of Visited: 24th December 2010

Ooopsss! Falling apart from travel post for so long!!!

The Sun Moon Lake is the largest lake in Taiwan. It is notable to be the most beautiful and most famous tourist attraction for both foreign and local visitors in Asia.

Unfortunately, if you happens to follow my post on Taiwan trip, you'll know that I'm joining organised tour guide and we didn't given any chance to stopby to take a spectacular photo of this place. That's why sometimes I dislikes joining them!

Sun Moon Lake 01
Only able to catch a glimpse of this place in few seconds from bus.

Situated at the shoulder of the mountain, there is a temple named Wen Wu Temple. It is the biggest temple on the northern side of the lake.

Wen Wu Temple consists of three halls:

Wen Wu Temple 01
The front hall where you will see once you enter the temple is known as "The Water and Clouds Hall". Its contains a shrine dedicated to the god of scholars and literature.

Wen Wu Temple 02
The middle hall which known as "The Martial Sage Hall", is specially dedicated to Guan Gong, the God of War.

Wind chimes along the steps, which are for blessings by the visitors.

The third and final hall, Da Cheng, is dedicated to Confucius.

Wen Wu Temple 06
Eventually want to grand many wishes but if too greedy, later God doesn't want to make any of my wishes come true. So don't be greedy and wish with sincerely.

We were given like 20 minutes to explore around this temple and from the photos above, it shown that I didn't manage to take as much as photo as I want. Because I was more focusing on something that located outside the temple.
