Baihe Daxian Temple (白河大仙寺), a major Buddhist temple built more than 300 years ago in Tainan, is a class three historic landmark.
More importantly, its architecture boasts a combination of Chinese and Japanese cultures, marking it one of the most #Instaworthy temples in Taiwan.
After passing through the magnificent red main gate, you will see a dragon sitting in a pond on the left side of the temple and a Bodhisattva standing beside it. Also, you will see a rustic, low mini gate dating back from the 1950s’ with some round arches on the sides.
There are five main halls in the temple — the main hall, Guanyin hall, Sanbao hall, Cundhi hall, and Tzushr hall — each with its unique architecture.
Among other highlights, Sanbao Hall stands at the back of the temple. It features a stunning interior design that is made of a large number of cypress trees. 108 cypress trunks are used to support this magnificent temple, which will absolutely blow your mind.
