Yuanheng Buddhist Temple
Kaohsiung

The temple was originally called Yuansing Temple and later known as Yanzai Temple.According to the literature, it was first established in 1743, and demolished in 1891 entirely due to a fire.After numerous times of movement, it was finally relocated to the current site from the foot of Shoushan, and renamed as “Yuanheng Buddhist Temple”.The goddess worshiped in the temple is the Goddess of Mercy, Guan Yin.The interior design of the temple is simple and elegant, creating a majestic atmosphere.Surrounded by hills and waters, the temple meets the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evening.Visitors can overlook the entire city of Kaohsiung from the platform at the front of the temple.

More About 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.Text by Steve Smith.
