    Great Buddha of Tsai Hung Shan

The Great Buddha of Liugui, also known as the Great Buddha of Tsai Hung Shan as it is built by the Tsai Hung Shan Religious Foundation, can be found on Xinkai Road of Liugui District. The construction of the Great Buddha was initiated in 2000 and lasted for 15 years. It was completed in 2015, and the Great Buddha was revealed to the general public. The Buddha is made of 167 tons of bronze and stands 20 meters tall, equivalent to nearly 7 stories; its magnificence can be felt when observing it up close. In contrast to its grandiose appearance, the Buddha has a peaceful countenance, with his eyes closed. At the pedestal of the Buddha statue are a bronze stick incense pot and a bronze table for offerings, both of which feature traditional but spectacular designs. Visitors can reach the Buddha statue by climbing the stairway spiraling up the hill.

The Buddha statue is a landmark of Liugui and attracts many visitors. Behind the statue is a temple worshipping 12 Vajrapanis representing the twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac.

Visitors are recommended to spend about an hour on the temple ground to look inside the Buddha statue and appreciate other skillfully-crafted Buddha statues.
