It's just some stained glass in the middle of a poorly designed MRT station. Sometimes they hold events underneath it in the hall but it's really not that exciting.

It is one of the best color-glass dome that we have ever seen so far, since we never saw such this at any stations in Asia Pacific, and it is so pretty since it is combined with lighting system. However, it needs more attractions such as music or other relevant features, since the station (Formosa Boulevard Station) was less crowded... More

It is in the Formosar Boulevard Metro station. If you come in to the right time (on schedule), you will see the lighting show with musical.

We purposely stop in this station just to admiring the beautiful artwork of sand glass. It would be nice if we could know the story behind the artworks.

Amazing Dome inside the metro station in the city center of Kaohsiung. Don't forget to take the camera with you!

The dome is an interesting piece of glass art to admire passing by. However, at certain times they have a so called "light show" that is embarrassingly naive and essentially transforms the area into a retro disco with nonsense light effects and pop music.

The light effect may be good but the explanation was not clear and overall it is actually quite boring..

A local pointed me to Dome of Light. I had already changed MRT lines in the station but hadn't seen it previously. I love the vivid colors and the grand scale of the work. When the air above ground in Kaohsiung is dirty, this is a good place to get away.

If there's anything that can take your mind off while in a busy city, this would be it. Situated downtown, this station is beautifully decorated. The next time you're rushing by, pause, listen to the piano, before moving on.
