What people are saying
A 70-year-old temple place, a chilling-out experience
Dec 2016
Last week me and my friend made a visit to Xiaonanhai Guanyin Temple, which has been conserved for 70 years in Niaosong, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. There are two well-preserved temple houses with many delicate statues of buddhas, one is the main temple house which has the Guanyin Buddha statue, and the other one is the Dizang Buddha (Ksitigarbha) temple house. Outside of the houses, there are a cool water pool with a dragon statue outside, and a big Guanyin buddha statue at the yard. It was lots of fun for us about the process of veneration, just like a discovering and exploring game. The volunteer in the temple told me that I had to go to the main temple house first, the another house was the next place, and then the small yard. (a bit losing memory about the process lol) He also told me that because each buddha in the temple has a different rank, so if we do venerate Buddhas, we have to meet the highest rank buddha first. Normally, the highest one is always no images to make statues, so it is a big censer (incense burner) instead which is set in front of the main temple house. So how did we start the first step? We venerated the sky lol. (And yeah, we have to offer incense in veneration. It is the tradition in the Daoism temple.) Due to the recommendation from the volunteers, me and my friend did the fortune telling from the master of this temple, Mr. Wang. He is very nice and easy-going, also a very talented fortune teller. He invited us into the main temple house and offered us tea and coffee, then we started to talk about our past and now. Magically, Mr. Wang said the buddha, Guanyin, gave him some messages (like ideas or murmurs) we have to take care of in the future. We all felt magical and surprised, because it was just like if we change the way to think or to communicate with others, things can be made to the great results. At that moment, it just made sense for us. We really had a great time with Mr. Wang, and this was a great visit experience for us. Oh, by the way, there is an interesting thing in the main temple house. I saw a piece of wall artwork which introduced the 17 or 18 (losing memory again lol) Guanyin buddhas. According to their different works and missions, they all have their own name in Mandarin, like Guanyin of fishing, Guanyin of playing games. If you are interested in the story of Guanyin, go and check that cool thing:) The best recommendation for you:)

To visit temple
Dec 2017 • Solo
Last weeks ago I visited this temple, even though is not a famous like Fo Guang Shan
But I think it’s a silent place and view can let people feel suspicious and peaceful and I think if I feel nervous or have some trouble I will get there again to let me calm~
