About the Venue

Since its opening in 2011, Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum had received several accolades including recognition by International Council of Museums (ICOM), ISO 50001 certification, and the 2014 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor as the top ranking attraction in Kaohsiung.
Buddha Museum is a 100-ha complex built to enshrine the Buddha’s tooth relic, now housed in the Main Hall.

The Fo Guang Big Buddha, which sits atop the Fo Guang Building behind the Main Hall, is the landmark of the Buddha Museum.

Within the compound, there are art galleries, a theatrical auditorium, a children gallery, and souvenir stores. In addition, visitors can get to experience Tea Chan, sutra transcription, or join in festive celebrations at the Five Harmonies Pagoda.

The Buddha Museum is a place designed for everybody. Since its opening, the Museum has provided free admission and services including guided tours, luggage deposit, rent of wheelchairs and strollers etc.

Designed with a human-centered approach, the entire complex is obstacle-free and the covered walkways shield visitors from the sun and rain. There are also plenty of spots for visitors to take a break while they rest their gaze on the beautiful sceneries.
