Guanziling Huo Wangye Temple(關子嶺火王爺廟)

Traveler rating:3.5 5 Reviews




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.
