This tour begins with a short trip to the lush countryside southwest of Taipei to Yingge. The small town is Taiwan's pottery centre, with narrow streets and lined with shops selling everything from earthenware tea sets to delicate statues. Then go to Sanhsia, about 22 kilometres southwest of Taipei, a bustling town with narrow, winding streets and brick buildings at least a century old. The main attraction is the Tsushih (Divine Ancestor) Temple, built in honour of Sung Dynasty loyalist, Cheng Chao-ying. This temple was in ruins at the end of World War II and a meticulous restoration project has been underway for some forty years. The temple is known for its intricately carved stone and bronze columns and statues, carved stone lions, camphor wood carvings and exquisite bronze bas-reliefs.
