When you’re in Taiwan, you may see temples almost everywhere. There are more than 15,000 official temples in Taiwan. Isn’t it crazy? Temples play an important role in Taiwanese religious culture. We see temples not only a place to worship gods and goddesses but also a community center to interact with others.

Once in a while, there will be temple fairs for celebration of gods’ or goddesses’ birthday. At this moment, you will see a bunch of people walking on the street, playing Chinese instruments, and dressed in puppets of gods. All kinds of decorated trucks follow this parade, and sometimes there will be hot girls dancing and singing on the trucks to invigorate the party. Temple fairs are full of colorful and interesting things to explore. But you got to have luck to witness temple fairs, because it’s not held very often.
