Bouddhism is one of the main religion in Taiwan. Foguangshan, which is situated in Kaohsiung, is one of the most famous bouddhist holy place in the whole island, it is also the biggest pilgrimage place. In order to resolve the problem of car parking space, government decided to remove about 5 tuns of river land to build a new public parking and designed a friendly pedestrian space to welcome pilgrims from all over the country and even the world. Actually, places specially designed for human social activities are totally artificial and produced so many fake landscapes.
