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

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 is to commemorate a hero who drove the Dutch out of Taiwan in the 17th century. The surrounding garden is very peaceful and pleasant to explore.

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.

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,
