Tibetan Buddhism in Taiwan
In recent years, Tibetan Tantric Buddhism has gained ground in Taiwan - a prominent convert is former Defense Minister Chen Li-an (陳履安) - and a number of Tibetan-style temples have been established. One of the most prominent isn't far from my home in Tainan: Gemagejyu Temple, also known as Karma Kagyu Monastery, is just south of Highway 20, very near the km22.5 marker.
