My wife and I recently visited this sight while in Tainan. Koxinga Shrine commemorates the general who vanquished the Dutch in the 17th century. A great tour guide makes this sight well worth a visit.

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.

West Central District/ North District
The West Central District is the most populous and the

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,
