Paochueh Temple was built in 1927, and it has been a quiet and secluded spot for studying zen and Buddhism. The temple was a drum-tower-like architecture, majorly serving Sakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha, and Amitabha Buddha. Yu-ai Bell Tower, Chi-bao Tower, and Maitreya Sculpture are three of the most well-known architecture. Among them, the seven-stories tall golden Maitreya sculpture is the prominent landmark of Paochueh Temple, and it is also a popular spot that draws numerous visitors. After World War II, ashes originally placed in the Japanese temple were taken out and set aside. The abbot of Paochueh Temple couldn't bear seeing these souls abandoned, so he gathered them and placed it in the temple, in addition to setting aside memorial tablets for soldiers sacrificed in WWII. In 1964, Japan gifted Paochueh Temple a 600 kg huge bell, which is located on top of the Yu-ai Bell Tower as thanks for the merciful act after war. This piece of history also draws numerous Japanese tourists, who come to Paochueh Temple for worship every year.
