Introduce

Guanziling (關子嶺) is most famous for its mud hot springs, and the God of hot springs is Huo Wanye, or "Lord of Fire". Guangziling's Lord of Fire is the “Acalanatha God” from Kyushu, Japan, the supreme deity of Tantric Buddhism in Japan. In 1902, the Japanese developed Guanziling Hot Spring, and built the Acalanatha God on the outcrop to pray for peace. This allowed them to raise funds to build the temple, and it can thus be said that Huo Wangye Temple (關子嶺火王爺廟) is the protector of Guanziling Hot Spring. Nowadays offering ceremonies are held during the hot spring festival period. Colored lanterns in the form of the Huo Wangye are sent off from Baoquan Bridge, floating past the Temple and ending up at the Dacheng Temple, accompanied all the way by extravagantly dressed tourists; an evening carnival-style event absolutely not to be missed.

    The history of this temple is dated from Japanese governing time. Huo Wangye is the same as Fudo Myo-o in Japanese. One of two spring sources is located near this shrine.

    1900年初頭に日本人が建立した寺院です。不動明王をまつっています。派手さもなくこじんまりとしているあたりが、中華寺院との違いかと思います。近くは散策にいい地域で、隣に温泉の源泉もあります。

    關子嶺火王爺是來自日本九州的中央不動明王,是溫泉業者的守護者求溫泉源源不斷.手持寶劍後方有火焰照耀和一般神明不一樣.

    溫泉的守護神-火王爺 (不動明王)

    Traveler rating:3 2017-10

    1902年日本人開發關子嶺溫泉時發現地火,因為來自日本九州的「不動明王」是溫泉的守護神,因此在火王爺溫泉露頭上方鏤刻不動明王石碑,以祈求平安。火王爺靈泉之所以稱為「靈泉」,因其有著讓受傷的日本士兵泡此泉不藥而癒的傳奇故事,獲此美名。
