    Fun place to visit
    Located opposite the Quiming Temple the two towers sit either side of a brightly coloured dragon which is crowned with a statue of Guanyin. You have the opportunity to walk up steps into the dragons mouth, half-way through the dragons body, there is a simple alter are before exiting at the other end. Lots of turtles sunning themselves around the side of shallow ponds made for an entertaining ten minutes watching their antics. There is a pier that takes you onto the lake itself. More fun seaside attractions here including the hen that lays golden eggs!

    Distinctive
    Lotus Pond is Kaohsiung's de facto spiritual corner. With so many temples scattered around the area, Zuoying is the best place to experience the local religious life. The Spring and Autumn Pavilions is a figurative example. Local folk stories are presented like cartoon characters. An interesting place to explore.

    Walk through a dragon!
    You really need to spend more than a day at the Lotus Pond to see it all, including this place, which is dedicated to the Buddhist and Taoist goddess of mercy and compassion, Guanyin. You can see her riding on the back of a dragon that stretches between the two pagodas. You can walk through the dragon and see murals inside, and there's a pavilion with great views if you walk along the pier into the lake. It's free, and it's right across the road from the Qing Court!

The Spring and Autumn Pavilions are two pavilions that are parts of a Taoist temple. It was located at the Lotus Pond and about 700 meters away from the Dragon Pagoda and Tiger Pagoda, but the lotus flowers in this area were lighter pink. I didn't have time to walk inside the dragon, which indicated that there was also a stucco on the wall. You can walk through to the pavilion that protrudes into the pond. Across the street there is Qi Min Tang Temple, which I also did not have time to have a good look.

Unlike the Dragon and Tiger Temple, this one was open. I entered through the dragon’s mouth and followed it all the way to the tail. The entire length of the dragon was filled with ceramic reliefs and at the center a small altar was setup.

Once outside the dragon you could cross over the lake where there was small pagoda at the end.

Alternatively there were two other pagodas nearby.

The setting was not as nice or as maintained as the other the other dragon but still ok to visit while walking around. You can combine this visit with the Chi Ming Tang Tame across the street.

Spring and Autumn Pagoda is located as Tsuoying, 12 km (around 7 miles) from Kaohsiung. It is built in the middle of the renowned Lotus Pond. A 200 metre (650 feet) high mountain stands behind the pagoda. The fengshui is said the be good. The combination of the pagoda and mountain creates attractive scenery.

After the dragon tiger pavilions, we visited this place. As common in this area, there were big beautiful sculptures of dragons, goddess of mercy and others. There was also an area with plenty of turtles.

If dragons are your thing stroll along lotus lake and see this pagoda. Fun to walk through and then enjoy looking at the turtles.

I enjoyed walking through the inside of the Dragon, which is much more visually striking than the two pavilions themselves. We walked out to the wuli pavilion, which is pretty from the outside but full of pigeon poo inside. It is definately worth visiting Qiming temple just across the road too.

This is one of the temples around Lotus Lake. It is not far from Dragon and Tiger Tower. The entrance is the mouth of a dragon like Dragon Tower. It is interesting, but as I visited it after Dragon Tower, I felt somewhat deja vu.
