This is a brand new and very elegant worship place which is exactly the opposite of a few other attraction/things to do in this industrial town called Kaohsiung (like visiting night market where people are grilling live shrimps on a stick till it is dead, aren't they Buddhist?).
Please refer to excellent direction from fellow TA reviewers unless you are going to this out ot town place with group tour. Founder of this Memorial Center is very wise, broad minded and welcomes everyone although theme of the place is Mahayana. This is a place for all ages and you could try some of those activities;
- 4D show is great for kids to introduce life of Budda.
- try a vegetarian meal at the very first building where you can find many shops in grandest scale. At least you will feel good although whether this is an important aspect of Buddhism.
- take a lot of pictures
Thing could improve: I wish there is some English speaking devotees on site. Again this is a general problem in Taiwan and I doubt it will improve soon.
