【Fo Guang Shan Buddha Memorial Center】
Fo Guang Shan Temple is the best known Buddhist center in southern Taiwan and is the largest Buddhist monastery in Taiwan. The design of the Buddha Memorial Center is inspired by both an Indian stupa and the Mahabodhi Temple inside the Bodhgaya religious site in India. Above it sits the world’s tallest bronze sitting Buddha statue. In front of the statue is the Way to Buddhahood path flanked by Eight Pagodas on either side, making it perhaps the most magnificent Buddhist landmark in southern Taiwan. The Buddha Memorial Center has in its possession a relic which is said to be Buddha’s tooth-one of only three in the entire world-as well as many Buddhist artifacts donated by various countries. The art gallery displays an array of historical and cultural treasures. It is one of the biggest Buddhist art treasuries in the world.
