Currently under construction, this temple is now a bit of a hodge podge with scaffolding and workers' gloves strewn about as worshipers make their offering. I kind of liked the the combination of spiritual and the practical, but much of the outside is obscured behind...More
This temple is dedicated to Guan Yu, a national hero in Han time. The entrance is not big, but the inside is quite big and complicated. If you want to pray Yuelaogong, a god for finding a good husband or wife, you go through a...More
The old temple at the front of the complex is really fascinating, but don't forget to explore the new shrine that has been built recently behind the old temple. Although it's two storeys, only the first is open, but there's a lot to see.
This temple is worth a visit and can be easily combined with other temples and sights in the local area. The temple contains a number of different altars and appears to be popular with locals as well as tourists.
People may find their time more than enough to be spared when arriving to visit Fort Provintia - it has a very big name in the history but it only occupies a very rather small area in terms of a "Fort".

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
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.
