Starting this off presented challenges, for if I were to initially have focused on the overly ostentatious display of spending that went into the new(ish) Buddha Memorial Hall at Fo Guang Shan, an outlay of cash that could/should have easily been allotted to more worthy...More
We went there from the city by taxi and the fare was about NT$700. The older part with the big Buddha and a thousand small buddhas was very tranquil and religious.There is also an exhibition hall about the history of the centre and Buddhism. The...More
I had no expectations but I was extremely impressed with this centre. I had a mentor helping me through as I think there is limited English signage but despite that I had a 100% experience. The 4D short movie, the palm reading and postcards are...More
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,...More
Before we visited the Memorial, we though this is just going to be like another temple like setting where you will find Buddha and a place of warship. Instead it is a very well designed Museum park that is great for families and non-Buddhists. The...More

Hi, the Buddha Museum closed on Tuesday, because many museums and playgrounds in Taiwan are closed on Mondays. Therefore, we decided to close on Tuesday so that there are more places to visit in Taiwan. Buddha Museum is a sacred site and perfect museum for everyone. You are very welcome to visit here again!

This itinerary needs quite a lot of refinement, particularly if you want to use public transport. I spent four and a half weeks in Taiwan late last year and used public transport almost entirely. However, I did a lot of research beforehand to ensure that I had allowed sufficient time to get from place to place and could make the necessary connections. Even so, there were some places where what I had planned didn't quite work out. One of the most difficult areas to negotiate is Alishan. If...More
Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum To Lotus Pond (1 Replies)
Hi! Is the best way via public transportation from the museum to lotus pond to take bus 8501 to Zuoying station and take the MRT rest of the way to the pond? Specifically, we want to go see the Pagodas. Thanks

8501 to Xinzuoying, then either walk/taxi there or train to Zuoying TRA station. Alternatively use Google Maps... https://www.google.com/maps/dir/22.6869243,120.3083503/22.6801304,firstname.lastname@example.org,120.2823399,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m6!4m5!2m3!6e0!7e2!8j1539780720!3e3 If you look at the map, the lake is very close to Xinzuoying station.

By E-Da bus 高鐵左營線 (8501-經義大世界延駛佛光山) from HSR Zuoying Station (platform 3 of the bus stand)to Fo Kuang Shan (佛光山), about 35 mins ride. This E-da bus goes to both Fo Kuang Shan 佛光山 and Buddha Memorial Centre 佛陀纪念馆
