    Diyuan Temple

The Diyuan Temple is a branch of the Yuanzhao Temple. It is located on the side of the Kaohsiung County Highway No. 131 in Liugui District, facing the Laonong River while resting against the mountain ranges behind. The Diyuan Temple is a palace-like temple complex formed by multiple elegant small temples. The main temple boasts a relief mural art created by experienced craftsmen from China, Japan, and Korea. There are also many sculptures in the complex, such as a camphor sculpture of a reclining Buddha, which can be found in the main temple and is said to be the largest in Southeast Asia. Other examples include five hundred stone arhat sculptures with different expressions and postures on the temple plaza.

Visitors are recommended to spend around an hour in the complex and check out its unique sculpture exhibition hall and fine arts museum.
