Taiwan Husheng Glass Temple, Lukang Township, Changhua County, Taiwán 

In the Glass Temple, Chuanghua’s traditional glass industry and green technology have been integrated to produce a religious building of considerable architectural interest. Despite its short history, the Glass Temple is unique in the world, and well worth a visit. It puts the Taiwanese glass industry on display by incorporating glass into the works of art housed in the temple. The glass is fixed with glass clamps; not a single screw has been used. Unusually for a temple, it integrates elements from Taiwan’s geography, folk festivals, and natural environment into the temple’s decorative ornamentation. The Mazu statue, her palanquin, and the Mazu ship are all made of glass. The temple is a showcase for the beauty of Taiwanese glass art.
