Wen Wu Temple located in Taiwan at the Sun Moon Lake

Originally, there were two temples on the Sun Moon Lake coast. However, due to the Japanese government plan to generate electricity using the lake, they built a dam and made the water level raised up. The two temples were then torn down and rebuilt at the present location of Wen Wu Temple in 1938.

The temple consists of three halls. The first hall located on the second floor of the front hall is a shrine devoted to the First Ancestor Kaiji and the God of Literature. The central hall is devoted to Guan Gong, the God of War and the warrior-God Yue Fei. The rear hall is dedicated to Confucius.

Wishes are everywhere

After the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China in 1945, the government spent money to develop the tourism industry around the lake area. Wen Wu temple was rebuilt again in 1969 to make it greater, bigger and looks more like Chinese palace style.
