  • There's two main pavilion which is the Autumn Pavilion and the other one is the Spring Pavilion. At the back of those pavilions is a walk way to another pavilion, called "Five mile Pavilion.  more »
  • Think of that is similar to the back of the Dragon Tiger Tower, I stopped by. Lots of turtles in the garden had was impressive. How music will get donations that are near the entrance, an interesting thought.

  • Grew up nearby. One of my earliest memories was coming to see the turtles in the pond with my parents, probably around the age of 3 or 4. 60 years later and halfway around the globe, here I am again. Also remember attending a ceremony celebrating Confucius' birthday in the 6th grade at the temple nearby. We were told to pluck and collect the hair behind the ears of the sacrificial cow after the ceremony. Supposedly if we put it under the pillow and sleep on it, so to speak, we'd receive the blessings from the Supreme Grand Master, become smarter and get good grades in exams. Worked for me😁.
  • Wonderful walkway through the dragon leading to a long pier out to the Pagoda. On either side of the pier are lovely lotus flowers. On the south side of the beginning of the pier is a small pond with lots of turtles.
  • This was one of the stop we had planned to see while in Kaoshsiung. We took the public subway and made our way to this location. Lots of walking for sure as they have different pavilions to see and they're not near to each other. The place was pretty busy with tourist and locals. This was an amazing experience and a must see.
  • I wouldn't say it a bad place, I think I chose the wrong time. Its so gloomy and all the lotus are withered. Thus, its not the best experience for me
  • Just a few steps away from the dragon and tiger pavilion. Not many people visit here and therefore an opportunity to take great pictures.
