A short bus ride from the city proper, 𝗙𝗼 𝗚𝘂𝗮𝗻𝗴 𝗦𝗵𝗮𝗻 is a place you shouldn't miss during your trip to Kaohsiung. This massive Buddhist complex is a pleasure to stroll through. The eight pagodas lining the complex hold multi-functional halls, interactive learning spaces and small souvenir shops. More exhibition spaces are held within the Main Hall and Shrines. One of the most unique features of Fo Guang Shan are the 𝟰𝟴 𝗨𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿𝗴𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 𝗣𝗮𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗲𝘀, which act as time capsules to preserve human civilization. Once every hundred years one of the Palaces will be opened. The precious items within will be replaced with new artifacts of historical value, and then it will be sealed up again.
Open today: 09:00-19:00
