Buddhist Library/Temple, Hsinchu

On Saturday, Yuling and I came across a large Buddhist temple/library which was also used as a cemetery site for Buddhist funerals.  We wandered in the front gate to visit the large complex, which was quite impressive – something I hadn’t yet seen in Hsinchu.

The main altar, below, is situated in the center of the complex.  It was only opened a little, though I got a peak of the interior and was able to get a nice mix of light and dark.

The next three images come from a large room with statues of boddhavistas and a large “fat buddha” which makes regular appearances in Taiwan.
