Sand Pebbles - Where is that Elephant?

Most of us remember the film, Sand Pebbles, staring Steve McQueen.

I received an Email from Don Whistance, asking for help regarding the movie scene shown below.

Don is questioning where the elephant and temple are located. 

Were these scenes taken in Taiwan or possibly another location such as Hong Kong?

Anyone know the location?

You'll want to go through Don Whistance's excellent, Sand Pebbles web site.

This location is Lin Family Mansion and Garden in Banqiao, New Taipei City.

I guess that elephant staute is just build for a movie.
