Tainan 2

Statue in the Koxinga Temple. Koxinga was a military leader in the final decades of the Ming Dynasty in the mid-17th century; he wasn't able to save the dynasty but he is fondly remembered by the Taiwanese because he drove Dutch troops out of Taiwan.
A scene at the Confucius Temple.
I honestly can't remember exactly where this was taken - perhaps I should consult my Lonely Planet again and update this entry!
In another temple.
Those little cakes turned out to taste like brown sugar, because that's what they're entirely made out of.
