Features

Named for its worship of Buddhist dharmapala Budong Mingwang (Acala), the Budong Mingwang Grotto Temple in Beitou is located within today's Yangmingshan National Park. Surrounded by the serenity of pristine nature, the temple consists of a shrine carved into rocky mountain walls next to a waterfall. Inside the shrine is a stone relief of standing Budong Mingwang, the embodiment of the wheel of injunction of Dari Rulai (Vairocana) that shows expressions of extreme wrath to save sentient beings that refuse to give up evil practices by making them follow the teachings of Buddha. The renowned Japanese Shingon Buddhist monk Kūkai prayed to Budong Mingwang for safe passage on his journey back to Japan from Tang-era China, so worship of Budong Mingwang (""Fudō Myōō"" in Japanese) became extremely prevalent among Shingon Buddhists in Japan. Budong Mingwang Grotto Temple was built during the Taishō era by Shotaro Sano, the owner of Hoshinoyu Hot Spring Bathhouse, which shows the temple's connection to the development of hot springs in Beitou and the spread of the Japanese Buddhist faith in Taiwan during the Japanese colonial period.
