PaoChueh Temple, Taichung

(3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Big Street stretches from the Taichung station, went by bus from the street stage. Near the bus stop of Xinmin Temple treasures. I was surprised because the winds further drivers bellow was asked whether passengers and drivers where to go other than our bus seemed to end, but the Chinese know the answer if you. Show Buddha 'Globe Trotter' pics and see Japanese? "And it seems convinced. Whatever the treasure temple building is under construction!? Thought came the big bag behind and walk to the right. Site is small but large bag-like.

Seems there is room after holding a dedication from Japan that is not exposed as. Will such predecessors ' hardships and efforts had continued good relationship with Taiwan and pretty. Gassho-zukuri. A big bag as well.
