The Dragon King Palace is the attraction that Allie has always wanted to visit when she saw the photos! When I saw it for the first time, I thought to myself: It's too much like the Kinkakuji that I saw in Japan before! (The Kinkakuji Temple in Japan was visited when we were in college. It is so old that memory is blurred ?) The Dragon King’s Palace is located near the well-known scenic spot Taiping Cloud Ladder. It is a short drive there. It is very suitable for playing along the Taiping Cloud Ladder and Taiping Old Street. There were very few tourists when we went there that day. Walking in the quiet park really seemed to have strayed into a paradise!
I heard that the Golden Palace of the Dragon King was bought by the locals to create a small world where the whole family lived together. The altitude here is about 800 meters and the air is very fresh. We really like this quiet and small secret place. It is hard to go through thirty-six twists and turns on the way up the mountain, but after coming up, the scenery is really beautiful. The scenic spot walks slowly and you can stay for a whole day, accumulating the usual busy mind.
The buildings inside the park include the Dragon King Palace, Yunshan Bieyuan, and Dragon King Palace, which are imitations of Chinese Tang and Song Dynasty architecture to create a sense of style. The temple is surrounded by a verdant mountain forest. Yunshan Bieyuan is located next to the Dragon King Palace. It is a courtyard-style Chinese style building. There is a Buddha statue in the open atrium, but you can only worship outside, not inside. The corner of the other courtyard plays soft music, a wonderful atmosphere of tranquility, solemnity and relaxation.
Dragon King Palace
It’s hard not to discover the existence of the Golden Dragon King’s Palace. There is a green pond and Buddha statues outside. Looking at the photos, we thought there was a big lake in front of the Dragon King’s Palace (it’s more like the Golden Pavilion). The pool is ? The Dragon King’s Golden Palace is free to visit. The pillars, walls, and even the floor of the Golden Palace can be seen with golden elements. The details are very careful. Go up the stairs to the second floor and find that the scenery is very beautiful. It is recommended to come up and take a look. It is really beautiful to see the whole landscape of the park and the Yunshan Courtyard next to it from a height.
Dragon King Golden Seat
The Dragon King’s Golden Seat is separated from the Dragon King’s Golden Hall and Yunshan Bieyuan. It is in another place. Walk for about 5-10 minutes. The golden corridors and roofs, each area is clean, and the flowers and plants are trimmed. It can be seen that the park is operating with ulterior motives. The innermost enshrines the Dragon King. There is a large pool in front. There are stone sculptures of the Chinese zodiac beside the corridor. At that time, the children on the side were looking for their own zodiac photos ?
Friends who have the opportunity to come to Meishan, Chiayi, may wish to include the Dragon King’s Golden Temple and Qiaoyun Xiaozhan as scenic spots to watch the buildings, appreciate the flowers and grass, and spend a good time in the mountains. I highly recommend it to everyone!
