Taipei is the capital city of the Republic of China (Taiwan). This postcard shows the Taipei Confucius Temple which is modelled after the original Confucius Temple in Qufu, Shandong province China. It is the only temple in Taiwan that is adorned with Southern Fujian-style ceramic adornments.

I like this card a lot as it is a contrast to the modern Taipei that is often shown and published on postcards. I love the traditional Asian cultures and hope to visit many of the temples and ancient sites that make countries like Taiwan so interesting for European travellers.

Can you please let me know which other cities or cites are interesting to explore in Taiwan?
