The showpiece here is the beautiful temple with its 10,000 golden Buddha statues, elsewhere enjoy pretty courtyards, lush landscaping and decorative peacocks. This Buddhist monastery and college is home to both nuns and monks and runs courses on Buddhism; check the website for more information. There is an interesting gift shop with souvenirs as well as literature on Buddhism and the excellent Jyun Kang Vegetarian Restaurant.
