Sansia XI: Roof Decoration of Zushih Temple

The second floor of the temple allows us a closer look at the tiled-rooftop decoration.  They are made of ceramics.

The intricated gold leafed wood carving on top of stone carved pillar.

These temples are amazing. I, too, noticed the carvings on these temples when I visited Taiwan last time. You have the camera and skill to capture them. I think they deserve a whole book devoted to them. I am partial to the lanterns - the light around it very soft, but clearly visible. Sis
