  • Overlooking Sun Moon Lake and presence is outstanding. Some nine-dragon like. In your incense in the misty visits for Venice was coach.

  • Overwhelmed in the grand sense of nice views overlooking the temple, located in the hills overlooking Sun Moon Lake and the temple itself. Some ruins scattered around the Sun Moon Lake, and among the most interesting monuments.

  • From the temple grounds, there is a super view on the Sun Moon Lake, already alone this view is worth a visit of the temple.
