No.63 Zhongshan Raod, Riyue Village, Yuchi County, Nantou, Taiwan
This was one of our visits when we visited Sun Moon Lake. It was one of our stop overs as we drove around the lake. The Temple is big and majestic as it overlooks the lake. The temple is built against the mountain slopes and hence there is quite a bit to climb and see. The wall carvings are beautiful and some of the statues are majestic. At the top of the temple, you can have a great view of sun moon lake and you can get some nice pictures taken up there. We spent a good 60mins over here. My smaller kids (3 - 6) liked climbing up the temples and looking at the dragon sculptures, my teenage kids were bored and just sat on a bench. But I loved it.
This Budhist Temple overlooks Sun Moon Lake and is quite large with lots of stairs. But the climb is definitely worth it. The colors are magnificent, the incense rising toward heaven, and one can feel the peacefulness all around you.
