Sanfong Temple
Kaohsiung

Sanfong Temple located in Sanmin District was built in 1672, about 300 years ago, making it a famous Taoist center in southern Taiwan.It is the largest Taizih Temple, commonly known as the “Temple of the Princely Lord”.The initial name of the temple was “Sanfong Pavilion”, and changed to “Sanfong Temple” after numerous times of renovations.The current design of the temple is a northern palace style, which is very impressive.The temple is divided into three sections – the front, the middle and the back entering hall.The principal deity worshiped in the main hall is the Zhongtan Yuanshuai (Marshal of the Center Altar), Nazha the Third Prince.

Owing to the huge number followers, the square in front of the temple, where festival activities are held, is always a bustling area with the exciting folklore dance performances and formations to enjoy all day long.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
