      The Dalongtong Bao An Temple is a Grade II historic relic which has undergone seven years of restoration. This year is also the 1025th birthday of the temple god Baoshengdadi, and the temple is holding three months of celebrations from April 6 to July 16. From June 13 to15, a ceremony that is quite rare will be held to thank the gods for protecting believers during the period of restoration. This will be a rich folk custom carnival. These three months of celebrations will show the religious beliefs of Taiwanese people, plus Taiwan's religious art. There will also be a three-month "surname game" and a variety of other traditional activities. Anyone with an interest in old art cannot miss this cultural feast. --By Ken Lin
