Huoshan Biyun Temple(火山碧雲寺)




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.
