This is a temple built in the traditional Japanese architectural style, incorporating elements from China and said to have been graced by the presence of the Sangokushi (literally 'Three Kingdoms') hero Seki, who worshipped here. On display at the temple gate and entrance is a framed picture of Kantei-byo shrine, created by the world-renowned calligrapher Yu Youren, a former secretary of Chiang Kai-shek.A carp ascending a waterfall (signifying a gateway to success) is what those negotiating the middle gate will see, and the main hall housing a statue of a blue dragon comes into view. It uses the same emperor's tiles that grace the Forbidden City in Beijing, once again emphasizing the Chinese origins of this venue.
