Foguangshan

Foguangshan means "Buddha's Light Mountain," and Fo Guang Shan Monastery is the biggest monastery in Taiwan. Located in Ta Shu of Kaohsiung City, the monastery was founded in 1967 by Venerable Master to promote his new Humanistic Buddhism. The first temple complex contained university buildings, shrines, and a cemetery. In 1975 and 1981, an Amitabha Buddha statue that stands at 36 meters high was placed at the temple, and the Great Hero Hall was added. Over 200 Fo Guang Shan branch temples were built outside of this main monastery. On today's 30-hectare campus, you can also see some of the largest temples in Taiwan, a museum, and a meditation center. The peaceful grounds contain beautiful forests and 10,000 Buddha statues. The splendid architecture found on the site and the temple's tranquil surroundings are good reasons why many people enjoy visiting the Fo Guan Shan Monastery.
