Kaohsiung Stadium and Fokuangshan Monastery
The Stadium was built for the 2009 World games. The roof is made of 8800 solar power panels making it the largest solar-powered stadium in the world. The panels also provide the shade and collect water.
For peace and quite, the village of Fokuangshan, has Taiwan’s largest Buddhist monastery. In Mandarin, Fokuangshan means “Buddha’s light mountain”. It was established in 1967 by Buddhist master Shingyun for the pursuit of Humanistic Buddhism and contains 14,800 Buddha images.
It’s impressive Buddha statue stands watch over the village.
After a wonderful relaxing and informative day in Taiwan, it was time to sail away as the sun sank into the sea.
