Art Collection sights in Taiwan
- Sort by:
The Pu Tian Temple complex on the slopes of Guqifeng (古奇峰; Gǔqífēng), 5km south of the city centre, houses one of the most impressive private collections of artefacts and curios we have seen in Taiwan. A few standouts include a life-sized Chinese bed made out of pure jade, a 6m-long panel of pure jade high relief, ferocious carved dragon heads whose mouths you could step into, several miniature villages carved from wood, and a small taxidermy collection of rare Taiwanese mammals. The 40m-high statue of Kuang Kong that squats above the temple is quite a sight, too.
To get here take a taxi from downtown (NT$200) or an infrequent bus (NT$45) from the Hsinchu Bus…
