Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum

Dragon and Tiger Pagoda with Lotus Lake

With a huge 108-meter golden statue of Buddha Amitaabha, Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum is the most prominent landmark in Kaohsiung. Apart from taking pictures with the Buddha, one can also circumambulate around the stupas. It is also the best place to know more about the core value of Buddhism. According to Master Hsing Yun, the Buddha Museum serves to acquaint the public with the Buddha’s quantities, through which the Buddhist practice can be inspired.

Both dragon and tiger are ones of the twelve Chinese zodiac signs. Some Chinese people believe that those who are born in the Year of the Dragon are more blessed than others. Tigers symbolize prowess, righteousness, and harmony in Chinese culture. Chinese people believe tiger is the king of all animals.

The dragon’s throat is the entrance and the lion’s mouth is the exit. Entering a dragon’s throat and coming out a lion’s mouth symbolizes turning bad luck to good fortune.
