Nice stop off of the 88 bus route. Tranquil setting with refreshments available for purchase. Also across the street and around the corner is a huge temple.

There's a little informational sign at the entrance about the history of this tower, but otherwise it's just another tower. If you've seen other towers around Asia, then don't go out of your way to see this one.

They really light up the tower and adjoining temples nicely in the evening, and it’s a lot less crowded. Lots of things to see, including the old fort ruins and an old elementary school in addition to the temple.

This fort has some great history back in the colonial days by the Dutch. Now people come home to pray to the gods that ensure their studies and businesses goes well.

There is a famous Taiwanese traditional noodle shop nearby. It's a good walk after lunch. A sightseeing spot of around 45mins.

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
