Located in Linyuan District, the hundred-year-old Cingshuei Temple was founded in 1666. It mainly enshrines Shakyamuni Buddha and Guanyin Bodhisattva, cultivating a herald of believers from all over Linyuan and Daliao District and enjoys perennial incense heyday.

Its founding is endorsed with mystical color as legend goes that a local farmer who surprised to find glaring light on the way to farming when passing by the Cingshueiyan. He spotted on the tree hangs a red incense bag, which imprinted on both sides the Shakyamuni Buddha and Guanyin Bodhisattva. As the event known throughout the neighborhood, locals were inspired to build a temple.

After reconstruction engineering undertaken in 1964, Cingshuei Temple has become increasingly quiet and beautiful, with plants and flowers decorated in the surroundings, as well as pavilions erected for pilgrims to take a rest.

清水巖風景區位於鳳凰山南段山麓,因山麓旁有泉水從石縫湧出,澄清見底,得名清水巖。日據時代屬高雄洲八景之一,為當地著名的名勝古蹟。登山入口位於清水寺後方,自巖上登高遠眺,可俯瞰林園區村落景緻,天晴時亦可遠眺林園工業區煙囪羅列之景象,視野十分遼闊。

風景區內地質屬隆起珊瑚礁石灰岩,化石藏量豐富,舉凡三葉蟲、扇貝類等。由於地質特性造成許多洞穴遍佈整座巖區,頗富盛名者為龍蟠洞,是日據時代遺址,長約六公里,蜿蜒深邃無透光,須持燈徐行莫約半小時可抵清水洞,可滿足遊者洞穴探險之好奇心。其他如靈泉池、長壽茄苳等景點皆蔚為可觀。
