We headed to the outskirts of town to check out Taiwan’s largest Buddhist complex Fo Guang Shan Monastery and Buddha Museum. Getting there was easy enough with a direct bus from Zuoying Station. The complex is divided into the monastery part and the museum part and it is huge looking more like an attraction in mainland China. We started in the museum part which had a handful of elaborately decorated prayer areas along with several themed displays that almost gave it a themepark vibe. Visitors interested in the history of Buddhism can easily spend a full day just in this section. If the displays are not enough, an hourly 3-D film was also shown. Galleries on the second floor showcased some Buddhism related art. The staff to visitor ratio was quite high and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
