Puji Temple

Buddhist Temple in Beitou

This Japanese-style wooden temple was built in 1905 and is dedicated to Guanyin. It's home to a couple of nuns and is beautifully preserved. Check out the bell-shaped windows, the intricately carved beams and if you're lucky, wild pink orchids will be in bloom in the pine-tree garden out front.

The steps leading up to the temple are marked by a large stone engraved with the Chinese characters for Puji.
