▲ � 廖 廁 Aoyama Shrine. Not only here, Taiwan’s cocoons are very lively at night. In 1854, during the Qing dynasty period, plague spread around Taipei and many people suffered. The plague epidemic was regarded as the work of the ghosts that lived in old wells. People from Qingfang Fujian Province solicited God Aoyama from their homeland, and the epidemic was cured. People say that Aoyama-gu was the beginning of Aoyama-gu Shrine, officially scolding Aoyama-oh, as Aoyama king exterminates a spooky monster that spits poisonous mist.
Or, when the fishermen of Qing Guan Fujian brought a god statue of Aoyama king from Aoyama shrine in Huanan, Quanzhou, they suddenly became unable to move where Aoyama shrine is located. It is said that it was made.

▲ 廖 廁 Aoyama king, enshrined by the Aoyama Shrine, is Mae King. It is quite black.
King Aoyama, also known as King Mae-an, is said to be a deity of Zhang, who was a general of the grandchildhood of the Three Kingdoms period (there is another theory). It has that. As a result, people who moved to Taiwan would have come to believe in Taiwan, where epidemics are widespread.
According to the legend, there is an old well where a spider monster lived under this cage, but no one knows its location.
! W! Vz Not only at Aoyama Shrine, but looking at the walls around the town, it is very interesting to observe Taiwanese people’s faith. Because there are a lot of foreign tourists, even if you stop by, you won’t be praised. If you are planning to go to Taiwan, I would like to recommend you to go after a little research on how to make a visit with a kite. There must be more interesting discoveries than visiting without knowing anything.
