Introduce

Heading along Taiwan Provincial Highway 20 (台20線省道) towards Nanhua Reservoir (南化水庫) in the direction of Jiaxian (甲仙), when joining the starting point of the South Cross-island Highway (南橫公路), one is sure to catch site of the dazzling Holy Glory Temple (玉山寶光聖堂), one of the most significant sites of the Baoguang division of Yiguan Dao (一貫道寶光組). The temple is the biggest Yiguan Dao temple within Southern Taiwan, and is of a particularly large scale, having been built in accordance with the topography of the mountains around it and offering a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape. Climbing up to the highest point within the temple compound, it is possible to look down at a view over Nanhua and to see the South Cross-island Highway winding its way through the landscape. The on-site Baoguang Museum (寶光文物館) features numerous artifacts such as cowrie shells, calligraphy, and cultural objects. Within the temple there are large statues and wall engravings in honor of Guan Di Ye (關帝爺), Lu Dongbin (呂洞賓), Maitreya Buddha (彌勒佛) and Dong Yue Da Di (東嶽大帝); and a relief version of the famous work of art Along the River During the Qingming Festival (清明上河圖) should not be missed.
