South YunLin Coastal Temple Ride
BeiGang Temple Parade Continued
Continuing part 1, the temple Parade continued towards BeiGang Mazu Temple.
Dancing lions did a short dance in front of the temple.
Same for the guards.
Doing some rituals…
Through BeiGang Town
Having enough of the cool temple parade, our South YunLin Coastal Temple Ride passed through the other parts of the town for more exploration.
Some sort of artistic bridge…
The old broken sugar cane rail bridge.
Part of the bridge inside the town was converted into a sky bridge.
Wude Temple (武德宮), another famous BeiGang temple. It worships “Fortune god (財神)”, and was the biggest temple of such kind in Taiwan.
Waiting in line for dancing!
Towards YunLin’s Coast
After BeiGang our South YunLin Coastal Temple Ride went west towards YunLin’s coastal area.
More old rail ruins.
Home made Taiwanese sausages!
ChengLong, or “Jackie Chen” Elementary.
You guys were facing the wrong way…
Lively stone lion design.
Community center, reusing oyster shells for walls.
Old building ruins converted into bird watching platform.
These were oyster rods.
JinHu (金湖) Oyster Rack Lagoon
Near JinHu (金湖), there was a lagoon outside of the seawall, and was full of oyster racks. Time to use my drone to get some aero shots!
The path was actually made by stacked tires and cement on top.
Towards Santiaolun Haiqing Temple (三條崙海清宮)
After taking some nice lagoon shots, our South YunLin Coastal Temple Ride continued north along the coast line, reaching Santiaolun Haiqing Temple.
Harbor water tower.
A veteran’s cool house.
Swag god hitting a bomb?
Park near Santiaolun.
The cool thing about Santiaolun Haiqing Temple was that although it was near the coast, the temple worships Bao Zheng, an historical Chinese judge now becoming the symbol of justice.
Parade everywhere today!
Temple Guards costumes.
Super tall furnace.
Cartooned Bao Zheng. The characteristics of Bao Zheng was his black face and the crescent moon at his forehead.
Parade really to enter the temple!
Big oyster wall art!
After the cool Santiaolun Haiqing Temple, our South YunLin Coastal Temple Ride headed east all the way back to our starting point.
