The Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum previously known as the Buddha Memorial Center, is a Mahāyāna Buddhist cultural, religious and educational museum located in Dashu District, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The museum is affiliated with Fo Guang Shan, one of Taiwan's largest Buddhist organizations. The museum is located next to the Fo Guang Shan Monastery, the headquarters of the order. The museum houses one of the tooth relics of Sakyamuni Buddha, the founder of the Buddhist faith.

Bodhi Square : "Bodhi Square" can gather more than ten thousand people. The two sides of the square are planted with small-leaved Laminaria trees. Under the trees are statues of the "Eighteen Arhats", which are the ten disciples of the Buddha, plus the three Venerables of Kalutayi, Bintolu, and Zhouli Pantoga, as well as Jianglong and Fuhu Arhat.

Main building : The Buddha Memorial Hall was built to enshrine the Buddha's real body relics. The "Main Hall" is the main building of the Buddha Memorial Hall. It is also the place where the Buddha's real body relics are enshrined. It represents "Master Shakyamuni Buddha."

Fo Guang Buddha : At the highest point of the central axis of the Buddha Memorial, sits a majestic and huge Sakyamuni, looking down at all beings with kind eyes.

Eight towers : The main building of the Buddhist hall is designed in a "tower" style. The Four Noble Truth Pagodas above the main hall are in the shape of big Indian pagodas. There are eight Chinese seven-story pagodas on both sides of the Avenue of Buddhahood, which are 38 meters high. The base of the tower is equipped with a briefing room and a reception center. , Provide various information and display cultural relics, books, etc., so that visitors to the mountain can rest, read, chat, rest or drink tea here.

Ten Thousand People Photo Station : Passing the 300-meter avenue of Buddhahood is the "Ten Thousand People Photo Platform". There are 37 steps, symbolizing the "37 Taoism." Standing on the steps, facing east, behind is the tallest bronze seated Buddha in the world; turning to the west, there are eight pagodas in the background. You can take pictures in both directions to commemorate the beautiful moments.

Salute hall : Master Xingyun once said: "You really have to go and take a look at the Hall of Respect to understand the importance of the Buddha Memorial Hall. Where is its great place? You can see from the Hall of Respect." 

Erzhong Tower | Sanhao Children's Hall : The San Hao Children's Hall is a gift from the Fo Guang Shan Buddha Memorial Hall to children and older friends. Hopefully, through the fun and relaxing 3D theater cartoons, it will make it easier for children to understand the San Hao sports-saying good things, doing good deeds, and being kind.
