  • Notice the name "Lotus pond" enshrined "Takeshi SEI" [Kanu] in 1953, was built, "Spring", "autumn-kaku" each two towers. 4-tier at the same size is 8 sides. The goddess ride dragons during the two towers. Go in from the mouth of the Dragon, and disciples of the Buddha is solid and is portrayed vividly. When I visited (mid-12/2017) admission free. From keimyung Temple, located opposite can take pictures throughout.

  • 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 ear 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.
  • Just a few steps away from the dragon and tiger pavilion. Not many people visit here and therefore an opportunity to take great pictures.
  • I think this is my favorite area in Kaohsiung! Take your camera!!! Great pictures can be shot here! Have fun!
