Photo of Syuentzang Temple near Sun-Moon Lake in Taiwan

I think this is called Syuentzang Temple. It's near Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan.

Syuenguang and Syuentzang Temples worship (enshrine) the relics of the great monk Syuan-zang. He was born in Tang Dynasty about 1600 years ago. His great achievement was that he went to India to study Buddhism and brought back a lot of books about Buddhism. Moreover, he translated those books written in Sanskrit (梵文) to Chinese language. He indeed made a great contribution to the development of Buddhism in China and other Asian countries. (Source)
