the free shuttle from THSR dropped me off here and I thought, why not start here. It´s immaculate and gives some cool respite from the heat. Coming from drizzly Taipei it was nice to see some hot sunshine, and the Hello Kitty Cafe is just...More

The architecture is more simple than you see in many Buddhist temples in Taiwan. The temple and surrounding gardens are beautiful and worth a visit. I think morning is a great time to visit this shrine.

I really lucked out as a ceremony involving hundreds of pilgrims in all sorts of costumes was taking place as I visited. It was spectacular and involved lion dances, trumpeteers, swordsmen and all sorts of giant gods. Whether this happens every Saturday I don't know,...More

Koxinga is credited with driving the Dutch from Taiwan. The grounds are pleasant to walk around and see the stone statue of Koxinga, the Sanchuan Gate, Kinmen-Shaped pool, Main Hall, Back Hall, and the Gate and Monumental Archway.

The locals build this shrine after Zhen's passing to commemorate his deeds. Visit in early to late mornings, and during (Jan-Feb) to catch the plum blossoms.

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,
