Does anyone know where this building/temple is located exactly? I took the picture on a trip to Sun Moon Lake, but I don't know exactly where along the way it was taken.

I believe it is Shiang-Der Temple,or in chinese,祥德寺.You can check here (24.181827672423,121.49579343675),in fact,where is far from Sun Moon Lake for more than 100km. It was built in 1968,but destroyed by earthquakes,typhoons,and flood several times. Now it is one of the most famous landmark in Taiwan Central Cross-Island Highway.

Thanks. That seems reasonable, since I believe we went up that road as far as T'ai-chung before we went south to Sun Moon Lake. The road through those mountains had breathtaking scenery.
