The tallest Buddhist temple in the world, Chung Tai Chan Monastery affords visitors a look at an enormous modern place of worship, with impressive interior and decorations. Opened in 2001 by Grand Master Wei Chueh (instumental in revitalising Chan Buddhism in the country) after three years of planning and seven years of construction, the monastery provides modern Buddhists with a place of learning and spiritual cultivation. Fusing the ancient and the modern, the main building offers an huge array of sights across its 37 floors, with many spiritual halls, each lavishly furnished and housing impressive dieties. You'll need to pre-arrange a guided tour (English language options are available) to really delve further into the depths of the facility.

  • 裡面的神像和建築非常的宏偉,神像的神情、姿態都讓人嘆為觀止,裡面的金碧輝煌程度讓我印象深刻;不過每位師父的神情都很兇,不理人,只有對包團來的訪客才會主動接近,我連招呼都不敢打了...感覺連出家人都很商業化,瞬間讓我對這裡沒有佛門應該有的感覺。 
  • 博物館藏頗有可看性,冷氣很強,且環境舒適,也適合當旅遊埔里時的雨天備案,唯在博物館若要用餐需要到本殿才有餐廳,蠻不方便。 
  • This is a great monastery. There was a museum that was closed when we happen to go. However check out the main hall for some very interesting statues. 
  • 非常莊嚴的禪宗寺宇、清淨的空氣與庭園、聳立的殿堂與佛像。 禪宗的代表禪寺,每年舉辦禪七廣傳於世界。 世界各地的人也慕名而來,打禪七學習靜坐。 山門口石牌立著:「中台四箴行」 對上以敬、 對下以慈、 對人以和、 對事以真。 待人接物、進退應對的準則。 大和尚推行佛法五化運動:佛法生活化、教育化、科學化、藝術化、學術化。 設有佛學院、嚴謹而有系統的傳承正信佛法與教理。幕鼓晨鐘、戒律嚴謹。
  • 有去過並且今天新聞方知開寺方丈昨晚往生了!
  • 不簡單的廟,看過才知道廟可以蓋的那麼華麗。一定要來看看
  • 對上以敬,對下以慈,對人以和,對事以真
  • Very wide temples, on the inside then don't talk to, this place needs a quiet
