Puji Temple

Buddhist Temple in Beitou

This Japanese-style wooden temple was built in 1905 and is dedicated to Guanyin. To get here ascend the steps opposite the Bank of Taiwan Dormitories and go in through the small latched gate on your right. The temple, home to a couple of nuns, is beautifully preserved. Check out the bell-shaped windows and the intricately carved beams. A real gem off the tourist trail.
