Introduce

The expansive Karma Kagyu Monastery (噶瑪噶居寺) is the first White Sect Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Taiwan. Built in 1986, the temple displays a blend of Han and Tibetan cultures. As you approach the temple, the aroma of cassia flowers floating over the grass makes tourists unconsciously relax their body and mind. Even if you don’t believe in Tibetan Buddhism, just walking around the site you can experience the peaceful atmosphere. In the Sakyamuni Hall (釋迦牟尼佛) there is a 16 meter statue of the Sakyamuni Buddha, its golden surface shining as if Buddha’s grace illuminating all, creating a magnificent scene. Outside the temple, the pure white pagoda has an exotic Tibetan grace, with golden prayer wheels surrounding the pagoda; the wheels are spun clockwise around the pagoda to pray for blessings. Inside the temple there are a great many murals, thangkas and paintings; an impressive collection of Buddhist art.

    Amazing Temple, Must-see in Tainan!

    Traveler rating:5 2015-01

    Most tourists don't know about this Tibetan temple in Tainan. If you take a taxi here, you will thank me later. It's a huge temple complex that will give you a special feeling of peace. The temple office kindly ordered me a return taxi.

    這座藏傳佛寺的位置在左鎮,開車去很方便,附近也有停車場可以停。而且整座寺廟非常非常的寧靜,可以坐在階梯上悠哉的放空,內部的建築也是很特別

    神秘但莊嚴的密宗佛寺

    Traveler rating:4 2016-07

    這個地方是我一直想來,但一直沒時間來的佛寺,他在台南左鎮,環境很清幽,來到這裡我很幸運的有師父跟我導覽,主殿裡有座4層樓高的佛祖,加上燈光的照射,非常美麗,師父說每年大年初一來這,都會有活佛來祈福發紅包,有空可以來走走。
