Sanxia, about 22 KM southwest to Taipei, is a bustling town with narrow, winding streets and brick buildings at least a century old. The main attraction is the Zushi Temple, built in honor of Sung Dynasty loyalist, Cheng Chao-ying. This temple was in ruins at the end of World War II, and a meticulous restoration project has been underway for some forty years. The temple is known for its intricately carved stone and bronze columns and statues, carved stone lions, camphor wood carvings, and exquisite bronze bas-reliefs.

Duration: 1 hour

A short trip to the lush countryside southwest of Taipei brings you to Yingge where hand-painted replicas of elegant Ming (1368-1644) and Ching (1644-1911) vases are produced.
