Temple in Kaohsiung

Covering five hills and 30 hectares, Taiwan's largest Buddhist monastery consists of original Buddhist facilities from the '70s and '80s – a solemn main hall, shrines, small temples, and educational and burial facilities. It's a good place to learn more about Buddhism as some of the resident monks and nuns speak English. The new addition to Foguangshan is the Buddha Memorial Center, a 20-minute walk away, which looks like a set from Tomb Raider.
