There are numerous paintings and sculptures that depict the life of Buddha Sakyamuni. All the photographs shown below were shot in Yuanheng Temple, Kaoshiong. Yuanheng Temple was built in the reign of Emperor Qianglong of the Qing dynasty. It is one of the few remaining historical temples in Taiwan. Its original name Yuanxing Temple has since been changed to Yuanheng Temple. The style of the architectural design was delicately simple and subtly elegant. In 1973, Venerable Pumiao led followers to finish the building of the main cultivation hall where the main statue of Buddha Shakyamuni is respectfully placed. On the inside and outside of the main hall, there are sculptures of the life of the Buddha. There are thirty-two sculptures in total. All the sculptures were created in style that portray solemn magnificance.


Of the thirty-two sculptures, the 24th and 27th are partly hidden from the camera due to their location. Hence the sculptures were created in styles that portray solemn magnificence.
