Chinese_lu_symbol_-4x4.svgFolk religion in Taiwan is an extremely complex mixture of various traditions. Although people vary greatly in their involvement in religious practice, most are influenced by the folk religion.
Taiwanese folk religion is animistic, polytheistic and syncretistic. It is animistic because Taiwanese people firmly believe that spiritual forces have power over their daily lives. It is polytheistic because people believe in and worship multiple gods. It is syncretistic because Taiwanese have blended many varied and even contradictory religions and folk beliefs.
