Paper Dome is a church made of paper tubes. It was built by famous Japanese architect Shigeru Bun after the Great Hanshin Earthquake in Japan and became a religious center of the survivors. After the “921 Earthquake” in Taiwan, this dome was moved to Puli to continue its mission.Nowadays Paper Dome complex is used as a culture centre. Art exhibitions, music concerts and other performances are held regularly there. A semi-open space formed includes shops, restaurants and leisure areas.

I had to pay the fee and there was nothing much to see. It is just a paper dome with some other stores next to it. The pond next to it was very pretty.

Paper dome is a small place but interesting architecture with its root from Japan. One will need to sit through the Mandarin presentation to understand its value of bringing people together, overcoming the devastation of the 921 earthquake. Not a very popular tourist place but...More

Dome is supported by many paper pillars which is interesting. However the structure is protected by doors which spoils the sight. Owner should consider replacing the doors with some other protective structures that does not spoil the beauty and uniqueness of the pillars.

Actually I thought the little hall should be made out of paper, but it seems that it is a place to promote environmental protection and preservation of butterflies.
