Churches in Hsinchu

These HDRs are two churches I saw right before  our visit to the zoo yesterday.

While Christians make up a small part of the population, they are visible in most cities.  Some other groups do include Mormons (with the infamous name tags and black ties – both Taiwanese and American), Catholics, and offshoots of Taoism and Buddhism such as I-Kuan Tao and the Red Swastika Society (the swastika here is used as its original intent – a symbol of good will from the Hindu and Buddhist lines of faith) – though these other groups often melt into the larger Taoist and Buddhist sects.
