Lotus Lake is a beautiful area to explore in Kaohsiung City, southern Taiwan (台灣高雄蓮池潭). I had an opportunity to spend the afternoon there just before Chinese New Year, 2009.
The lake is man made and a popular tourist destination. It has many temples and pagodas, including the Spring and Autumn Pavilions (春秋閣), the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas (龍虎塔), and the Confucian Temple (孔廟). It can be walked around in half a day while still seeing all the sights.
I was unable to find much information on most attractions around the lake, but I’ve provided what I know.
