Updates : 2023-10-03


One of northern Taiwan’s most famed niji temples, or nunneries, Yuantong is a diverse religious center featuring traditional Japanese elements, western culture, and traditional Taiwanese architecture. It is simple yet stately. The temple was founded in 1926 and received a major addition in 1982 when a library specializing in Buddhist studies was built. The library includes a large collection of works and is a favorite place for people to relax while concentrating on a book. Behind the temple is a garden containing a well-known cavern that is only big enough for one person to pass through at a time, and there is a mountain trail that connects to the Hunglodei area.
