Introduce

Built in 1798, Huoshan Biyun Temple (火山碧雲寺) remains much the same as it looked originally. The ancient temple has a mixed Minnan and Japanese architectural style and has a backdrop of the Pillow Mountain range, giving it a simple and elegant look. There is a hole in front of the temple that has a central role in a legendary story; it is said that just enough rice for the temple occupants to eat used to flow out of “rice gushing hole” every day. One day, a greedy monk wanted to have all the rice to himself and dug down into the hole, after which rice never came out again. This unusual story is widely known locally. Inside the temple is solemn and quiet. The benevolent look on the face of the statue of Guanyin Bodhisattva gives many worshippers spiritual comfort. The temple square in front offers expansive views out over the entire Chianan Plain. At sunset, the glows of the setting sun and the pavilions on the trail built up the hillside combine to create a beautiful scene that attracts many photographers. After dark, the temple is one of the best places to enjoy the dazzling Tainan night scene.

    Taiwan Temple

    This is a traditional temple and is known for the “rice hole” next to it. I noticed a bus load of religious tourists with their gods visited this temple. My first time ever here, so I don’t know much of this temple.

    Small Temple with Lots to Admire

    Traveler rating:4 2018-01

    The scenic in front of this small temple is beautiful. Though a small temple, it is filled with many interesting features. If you are in this area, it is worth a while for a visit here.

    Biyun Temple fka Volcanic Temple. A historical monument located on the south hill of Pillow Mountain in Tainan, Taiwan. A fusion of Buddhist,  Taoist and Taiwanese folk culture.  A free vegetarian lunch is provided from 11 am to 1 pm. You can donate any amount you want or not at all towards the lunch. The lunch was simply delicious! Biyun Park is located in front of the temple.  The mountain view is beautiful. Visit  the Water &  Fire Cave = Shui Huo Tong Yuan one kilometre  away.  The Water &  Fire Homogeny is so named as there is a constant fire burning over the water sure to the combustion of methane gas that seeps to the surface because of the heat from the hotspring.

    台湾のお寺さんはやたらごてごてしているものもありますがこちらはだいぶ落ち着いていて善かったです。トイレを借りられて助かりました。

    香火鼎盛千百年靈山古剎

    Traveler rating:5 2018-02

    碧雲寺在關仔嶺上.上千百年的靈山古剎.主殿供奉觀世音菩薩.這裡居士香客稱觀音佛祖.遠近馳名.尤其每年農曆12月24送神.觀音佛祖有來自台南東山區碧軒寺觀音佛祖回娘家.就是回到碧雲寺.直到新一年的正月初十日.子時許所有來自世界各地的善信大德如蜂擁般的湧進碧雲寺.步行隨著觀音佛祖的進香團隊逐步往東山碧軒寺進行遊行.堪稱舉世無雙.熱鬧非凡.一直到初十的夜晚.觀音佛祖在簇擁的香陣擁護回進到碧軒寺.非常浩瀚的進香陣容.碧雲寺還有一美麗傳說.古時候這裡是漏米岩.長年不斷的.每天有多少香客就會有多少米自岩縫漏出來多少米.後來一位尼姑認為.這樣或許把洞穴鑿大點.米多點可以供更多香客.就把洞穴給鑿大了.漏了好多米.可就這樣.米再不漏出來了.沒有米再從漏米洞漏出來了.引人省思.就是給人一個警惕.凡事要順其自然.不可強求.不可貪婪.夠用就好.惜福是好.
