大雄寶殿又稱佛祖殿,奉祀釋迦牟尼佛、阿彌陀佛、藥師佛與觀音菩薩,佛教為主體。二、三樓是正殿,供奉釋迦牟尼佛,其中有一尊是泰國巴博元帥惠贈的泰國國寶-釋迦牟尼金佛,是參照印度科達時代的印度佛像形態,由九種金屬礦石精工鑄成,是該廟最特別的一尊佛像。

宮殿遙望就像一個釋迦牟尼頭像,北方式古樸的設計、精琢的雕刻,輔以白水晶石及花崗石鋪砌的壁柱地面,淡雅、細緻中凝聚出莊嚴肅穆的氣勢。大雄寶殿的圓頂周圍十八龕則分供十八觀音菩薩化身,殿前廣場矗立著天王門,門的兩側分供增長、持國、多聞、廣目四大天王,是衛道護法。

This panorama was taken in Taiwan, Asia

This is an overview of Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
