There are a few hiking trails on the mountain near the temple.
Feel free to wander inside and around the tranquil temple grounds.
Located at nearly the highest point in Kinmen on Taiwu Mountain, there's been a Buddhist temple here for about 800 years.
You'll notice two towers on the sides of the temple—they're called Dragon Tower and Phoenix Tower. Dragon Tower has a big drum; Phoenix tower has a 750-kilo copper bell. It's said the ring of the bell can be heard 30 kilometers away.
The Chinese characters on the stone gate outside declare the temple to be "Best among all Oceans and Mountains". The giant granite stone inside the temple has a name: The Peace of Mind Stone.
Opening Hours 08:00-17:30
