On our way from Kaoshiung to Kenting, we were a little hungry and decided to look for a snack. We turned off the main road toward an area that had a few restaurants according to Open Street Map. Quite randomly, there was a temple at the end of the street. (Truthfully, that’s not so random for Taiwan – it seems like there’s a temple on every street.) Serendipitously, they were having some kind of celebration.
There were fireworks, parades and a small market with food vendors. Even better, there was a show. The costumes were awesome.
Just up the street, there was this colorful shop selling articles for prayer rituals.
