PaoChueh Temple, Taichung

3.1
#1 of 10 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.

  • I would bling Buddha main, quite big and is fine. Behind the postures, sit next to a life-size Buddha.

  • ---however, there is not much else to see. It was nice walking around the grounds but for Taiwan with amazing temples this was not a big deal.  more »
  • From the Taichung train station is about 15 minutes by taxi. From the 9:00 17:00 can be admitted free of charge. A Buddha belly button piercing. Day Guidebook into the Interior of the womb, there is no such information. Perhaps it was on the verge of the end 16:30.
