Temples of Taipei

While many of the neighboring People's Republic of China's religious and cultural heritage sites were destroyed during the Cultural Revolution, the democratic island state of Taiwan has done much to preserve traditional Chinese culture. Taipei, Taiwan’s capital, is a great place to learn about the traditional Chinese Culture's "Three Teachings:": Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism, by visiting the many historic and active temples throughout the city.
