Scenic Information



Situated over the cliff at Longdong Cape, the Silingyan Temple is one of the most well-known temples along the Northeast Coast; it is also known as the Buddha Temple and a spot that offers great ocean views. Even though it was built in Jiaqing 1 (A.D. 1806), the temple has been reconstructed with a repolished look. The remaining ancient stone pillars are being erected over the empty land by the temple, with no labels indicating year of construction. Inside the temple, there is a grand clock that is more than a century old; and there is also an extraordinarily exquisite pair of couplets hung at the main hall.
