Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a beautiful and colorful temple in the Alishan Forest. The exterior and interior of the temple has a lot of detailed carvings. We happened upon a religious ceremony so we were very lucky and impressed.

As we went down from the sister lake, we approach this temple with food court surrounding. We had the so-called traditional railway lunch box as our lunch. We then went into the temple to search the mystery moth. It’s been quite well known (but I don’t know) that some beautiful moths would fly into the temple and stayed on the surface of the statue. However, we were not lucky enough to see it this trip. I will definitely stop by here during my next trip to check it out.

We did feel surprise when we saw there is a temple in the forest. The small food court just beside the temple. We were not going inside the temple so we just took a photo then continue our journey.
Visited on Nov 2019.

Toward the end of our magical walk through the Alishan forest, this magnificent Taoist Temple, with its imposing and intricate exterior, appeared before us. What a forest surprise! Our private guide explained to us that because of multiple accidents, the lumbermen cutting down the cypress trees wanted to be protected and blessed from further misfortune. As such, this temple was erected. It was completed in 1948. At an elevation of 7,050 feet, it is proclaimed the highest temple in Taiwan.

Our guide also explained that every March, the temple is visited by moths who roost on the statue of the God, Xuan Wu, which the pious consider to be a mysterious wonder since these moths appear around the time of his birth.

This site is definitely worth a visit!

Shouzhen Temple is in the middle of the Alishan forest, The temple is quite impressive. It is surrounded by a horseshoe of small shops selling .drinks, at a big mark-ups, and cheap souvenirs. You may stumble across the temple, it is worth a look but its site seems to be a trifle inappropriate.

From Alishan House, we walked here passing the Xianglin Arch Bridge and the Boat-shaped bridge. It has a gorgeous facade and is definitely worth a look. There are some snack and souvenir shops here.

It is a Taoist temple in the middle of Alishan trail. Near the temple is a rest area with many small eateries and souvenir shops. In my opinion, this kind of construction including the temple is not suitable for natural park.
