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.
