Neighborhood: West Central District/ North District
The West Central District is the most populous and the busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the district, and the long-standing history results in a variety of street food. In addition to that, this district also has the highest number of temples. This is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example, Hayashi Department Store, National Museum of Taiwan Literature, Confucius Temple, Chihkan Tower (formerly Fort Provintia), Sacrificial Rites Martial Temple, Tainan Grand Mazu (name of a goddess) Temple, etc. Recently, the tourism in Tainan has laid emphasis on alleys and lanes. Examples include Fujhong Street specialising in creative handicrafts, as-you-stroll desserts on Jhengsing Street, Shennong Street lined with hundred-year-old ancient houses, Sinyi Street on which the old city gate stands, Sinmei Street where old and new cultures fuse together, and Guohua Street and Baoan Raod famous for all the savoury food. All the traditional and delicious food and flavours are about to burst in your mouth. The North District, on the other hand, is a quiet secret hideaway. Lane 321 on Gongyuan Road used to be a Japanese soldiers’ dormitory. Now a few artists have set up their studios here. There are diversified art styles in each old Japanese-style house. The Garden Night Market on Haian Road is one of the famous night markets in both Tainan and Taiwan, and was the top 12 Facebook check-in location worldwide in 2013.

少有的清靜寺廟
Jul 2019 • Family
很高興有一位俗世師兄,進去裡面請女師父出來解說了一下寺的歷史。
很是典雅,清靜
清淨得不像一個觀光點,而是真正的是寺廟
樑上的雕刻一體成型

どちらかといえば小さな寺院

台南市内の寺院にしてみればとっても小さな寺院だと思っております。
寺の説明書きのような看板はありませんでした。
像が堂々と建っておりました。

旧市内の繁華街の巷にあるお堂です。日本人には馴染みのない齊教のお堂ですが祀られているのは観音菩薩様です。

 日本時代の銀座通り(中正路)の小巷にあるお堂です。齊教と言う儒教、道教、仏教、羅教などの混合した宗派のお堂です。扁額などが白木で派手ではないのでなんとなく日本風に感じますがご本尊の観音菩薩様は金ピカです。こじんまりした三合院ですので中正路から孔子廟に向かう際にこの小巷を通るといいと思います。忠義路よりも静かで安全です。

三級古蹟の一つ
May 2016 • Solo
林百貨から孔子廟に向かう為レンタサイクルで移動中、たまたま道路横に看板を見かけて立寄ってみました。建て込んだ地域で塀に囲まれた狭い敷地内となっていました。三級古蹟に指定されているようで、石碑と臺南市政府による中国語だけの案内板がありました。境内に入ると堂があり、堂内に祀られた像がありました。ここも金ピカの像でした。
