This park and shrine are both beautiful and peaceful. Just off a main road so it is very easy to access, but once inside it feels like you are in the countryside. The park is beautifully laid out with ponds, pagodas and the shrine. The...More
I would consider this shrine a must-do experience when in Tainan. It offers a good overview on one of the country's most important leaders, Koxinga, and also boasts spectacular blue tiled roods, red-painted doors and an unusual mix of greens in the color palate of...More
This shrine to the "liberator" Koxinga is a green urban oasis. There is a small park with a pond and sprouting dragon, a temple, a museum, a gift shop, and a perimeter wall lined with historical objects. No price is right -- free -- and...More
The shrine has been beautifully restored, we visited it in the late afternoon, which I would recommend, since there is a beautiful sunlight in the area. At the side of the shrine is a small park that invites for a brief rest. The neighbouring building...More
... inside on the left are rooms that tell about the history of Koxinga, his parents, his children and the politics of China, Taiwan and Japan. (Oh, and also the Dutch colonial merchants who set up shop in this area for almost 40 years before...More
This shrine is dedicated to Koxinga, a nation’s hero, who battled against Dutch colonialism. Unlike many other temples, this shrine is well maintained and its wide premises is quite pleasant. There is also a museum nearby.
My husband and I were not planning on stopping here but we rather stumbled across it. We were heading somewhere and I was just like... I want to see this place.. and so we ducked in for a look. I loved simply walking around. It...More

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.
