    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.

    This enormous temple's ground appeared to be too big and vast to be well maintained. Many exterior details were neglected from the combination of aging and exposure. The two cartoon figures in front of the main hall were definitely something out of place and unexpected to see there. However, the laying Buddha in the back hall was absolutely beautiful and inspiring.

    2023.11.28 Come to worship the Buddha. Diyuan Temple is surrounded by mountains and rivers, with a quiet and beautiful landscape. The solid wood camphor tree reclining Buddha in the main hall is solemn and fragrant. It is so attractive. You can also visit the stone art exhibition collected by Mr. Wang Renyi, which is not to be missed! 👏👍It is 2 kilometers away from the Liugui Police Station and has convenient parking. It is a Buddha worship itinerary not to be missed when traveling to Liugui! 🤗
