“Bright and Gaudy!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

On Lotus Pond, not a essential visit if you're short of time in Kaohsiung. But worth a look if you're not.
They're big, brash and bright.
There is a lovely temple just a little further up (opposite the Spring and Autumn Pavillions) that's worth a look.
Don't feel bad if you miss it!

“Cultural and Religious”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Quite eye opening. It is located on Lotus Lake in Kaohsiung. Entering through the mouth of the dragon and exit through the mouth of the tiger brings you good fortune. And you can walk up the two pagodas.
