指南宮位於猴山坑上海拔二百三十公尺,創建於清光緒年間。由淡水知縣王彬林自山西永樂宮分靈來臺。原為茅草建構,歷經前賢精心擘畫設計、重修擴建,成為現在的規模。

宮殿園區佔地廣達數十公頃,古木參天,濃蔭蔽日。全宮共有純陽寶殿、凌霄寶殿、大雄寶殿及大成寶殿四大殿宇。主殿均是依山而建,宏偉莊嚴,建築多採堅固青斗石,部分殿宇並用銅瓦覆蓋,可歷千年。

指南宮前後約有一兩千棵櫻花,集中在凌霄寶殿到南天門之間的山谷,還有大雄寶殿後面小山上,花姿清秀。櫻花季,也是香客祈福旺季。

This panorama was taken in Taiwan, Asia

This is an overview of 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.
