SWEET BREAD SOLD AT LONGSHAN TEMPLE, TAIPEI

Travel Comments Off on SWEET BREAD SOLD AT LONGSHAN TEMPLE, TAIPEI

Longshan Temple is the most active temple in Taipei. The temple is dated from 1738 and built by settlers from Fujian

The temple is dedicated to goddess Matsu and more than 180 other deities.

Fascinating building and had stood up heroically  against wars and natural disasters.

Rebuilt and renovated  so many times, the temple is well loved by the entire country.

Outside the temple you will enjoy a fabulous market selling all sorts of ingredients, pastries, fish, meat.

The journey inside the temple and through the alleys of the surrounding is marvellous and enchanting.

I came across those unusual shape sweet bread. They are steamed and they look uncooked with different colour from red to purple and lilac.

They are filled with mung bean paste, custard or braised meat.
