    Miaochong Temple

The Miao Chong Temple was originally built in Caoya, Qianzhen District, Kaohsiung in 1963. However, due to Kaohsiung City Government’s road expansion project, the temple was moved to Qingliang Mountain in Liugui in 1984, and the relocation process was completed in 1988. The temple now sits near the 7km mark of Provincial Highway No. 27.

The Miao Chong Temple consists of seven Chinese-style temple buildings arranged to form a Chinese palace-like structure. Each temple building features two floors, a hipped roof with upward-bending corners, pillars decorated with Indian rubies, marble walls, and rails; such design is said to be rare around the world.

The temple is tucked away in a mountain and shrouded with serenity. Its exterior is decorated with colorful words of the Oṃ maṇi Padme hūṃ, the six-syllable mantra, in Chinese and Sanskrit. The temple mainly worships Manjusri, but sculptures of Buddha can also be found on the walls inside the building. The Buddha sculptures are carved with great care and present many details; every single piece is an artwork itself.

Visitors are recommended to spend two hours at the temple. Besides artworks in the building, visitors can also appreciate great view from the vantage point in the temple complex.

A large temple located on the mountain of Rokuge It belongs to Tibetan Buddhism and is dedicated to Manjushri Bodhisattva. Go straight up the road and there are five-leaf pine trees on both sides. There are three parking lots above where you can park your car. The main toilet is in the parking lot outside and is not open for use inside. The whole temple is so spectacular and solemn that it’s amazing The carvings are quite realistic and distinctive. The white jade carvings on the walls are quite exquisite. Add some unique statues, graphics and text It can make people slowly ponder and ponder the rich meaning. Please note that slippers are required to enter the main hall. You can walk along the stairs to the left and right of the gate to worship Buddha. The main entrance is different from the entrance of a Taoist temple Enter left and exit right. The inside is dazzling and quite gorgeous. The cloth-weaving statues hanging nearby are all beautiful There are stalactite decorations on both sides, and the materials inside are rare. and many jade or wooden idols There are many kinds of walls, roof tiles, wall decorations and patterns. The decoration of the offerings is also very particular, which is jaw-dropping It is a place where you can visit or worship Buddha.
