Fo Guang Shan Monastery

Founded by the Buddhist Master Hsing Yun, the Fo Guang Shan Monastery is one of the nation’s most-visited temples. Its huge golden Buddha stretches more than 100 meters into the sky and nearly 500 smaller versions of this religious deity circle around its feet. Four distinct temples honoring Sakyamuni line the banks of nearby Goaping River. And while scenic views from the monastery are particularly beautiful during the day, the glow from 14,800 lanterns tucked into the walls of the four shrines is particularly impressive as the sun begins to set.

Practical Info

Fo Guang Shan Moastery is located off of Xingtian Road. It is accessible by bus from Koahsiung Railway Station via the direct bus to Fo Guang Shan Monestary. The shrine is also accessible via train by traveling to Jiuquatang and taking a taxi or local bus.
