PaoChueh Temple, Taichung

3.5
#1 of 18 in Historic Sites in Taichung
Built in 1927, PaoChueh Temple attracts visitors with its giant Buddha, which stands seven stories tall in tribute to the temple's resident deity, Gautama Buddha. While the rest of the temple is relatively small, the massive statue makes for great photography opportunities. However, you can also seek out some of the smaller delights, like the fish pond, the garden, and the smaller Japanese temple nearby. This blend of Taiwanese and Japanese Buddhism signifies the reconciliation and healing that occurred between the two cultures after World War II.

  • Temple has been erected in the concrete building (roof). Hotei is famous 30 m gold on the other side, currently no images in. Top seems be rich Pat your belly button and ears beside the small bag of height about 1 m, and to be happy. Instead not so much popularity, but did not see tourists was around dogs.

  • Take a moment to see what the huge passing by the road, visit jwabuli. Large modern temples as a guidebook that really big jwabuli jwabuli. But in the midst of a lot of other sights in the surrounding area, there is no point largely because we don't like the recommendation.

  • Peaceful and the 6 stories tall Buddha took my breath away when it was lighted by sunrise.
  • Big buddha.. nuf said 😂
  • Nothing much too see apart from big laughing buddha
  • Worth visiting once.
  • I agree with the previous comment. Practically nothing in here. Not worth visiting (for tourists) not unless you want to pray. A little bit far too from the other tourist destinations like the parks and museums.
