Da Tian Hou Gong, West Central District

3.7
See the place where royal dynasties once resided at Da Tian Hou Gong. Built in the 17th century, the temple now functions as a place of worship dedicated to the goddess Matsu, but a long time ago it served as a palace for kings and emperors. Learn about their days spent living here and hear gruesome tales, such as the story of the five concubines who hanged themselves in the main hall. Check out the etchings of mythical beings, found all around the building, altars, statues, and other decorations that exist both inside and out of the temple. A visit to Da Tian Hou Gong represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tainan trip itinerary maker tool to plot your vacation.

  • It is being repaired now, and the appearance has become the aspect of the amusement park at the end of the place. When it's inside, it's all the more disappointing because it's kept in place.

  • It is near the Red Fitting Tower, but it faces the square with a narrow alley from the main street. Taiwan is said to be the oldest tomb, but the purpose of the person who comes here is the god of the marriage called "the old man under the moon". He worships the god in front of him, turns around from his right hand, and there is an old man under the moon in a corner like a shrine in the back of the left. It is a mark that the picture horse of the pink heart hangs. It is a place that is really hard to understand though it is in the guidebook.
