Built in 1927, PaoChueh Temple attracts visitors with its giant Buddha, which stands seven stories tall in tribute to the temple's resident deity, Gautama Buddha. While the rest of the temple is relatively small, the massive statue makes for great photography opportunities. However, you can also seek out some of the smaller delights, like the fish pond, the garden, and the smaller Japanese temple nearby. This blend of Taiwanese and Japanese Buddhism signifies the reconciliation and healing that occurred between the two cultures after World War II.
