Taiwan > Tainan > Beimen Area II / Southwest Coast National Scenic Area
Beimen Area II
This part is the more populous and busier district along the coast in western Tainan. It was one of the places where the Siraya people, Taiwan’s plains aborigines called home. Extending from Jiali, Soulangh Cultural Park is the centre of culture and art in the area. The exhibitions in the warehouses at the sugar refinery integrates local culture. The Ye Wang Koji
ceramics in Jhensing Temple in Jiali District are listed as national historical monuments and have significance in terms of history, culture, and art. Sigang is rich in flax. The Grand Sigang Bridge that stretches over Zengwun River has gained the reputation as being the No.1 bridge in Tainan. The Sigang Procession is performed every three years and regarded as the No.1 procession rituals in Taiwan. The procession integrates both pestilence and procession rituals, and is a crucial religious ceremony in the coastal regions. The impressive procession reaches a climax when the king boat (a boat that is said to carry a king/god and rids a place of plague and evil spirits ) is set ablaze to scare off plagues. With regard to Cigu, it features white and soaring high salt mountains and Taiwan salt museum, which looks like a white pyramid. The ecology along the coast and the sand banks depict the changes in Tainan’s lagoons over the course of history. Cigu has abundant seafood and makes an essential habitat for black-faced spoonbills and migratory birds. To taste the freshest seafood, this is the place!
