It is amazing

I went there by number 99 bus. On winter/summer Vacation, the bus goes every hour, it takes about 40 min from Chicken tower. Huge, beautiful, worth to visit. I hope to visit again

I liked this place, but not too much. I have seen a few more interesting and beautiful temples, this one is special because it's huuuge and impressive, but sometimes I culdn't avoid the feeling of tackiness. For instance the two huge figures in front spoil the view. Also I visited it during the New Year and there was a lady... More

Maybe I visited too many temples in Taiwan and China, so its just another temple for me. For Western or travellers, should go and visit.

Located a about 20 minutes from Tainan Train Station is this very ornate temple. The hotel staff said its the most decorated temple in Taiwan. I am not sure I agree with that, but it was certainly pretty spectacular!! The giant guardian demons out front, the multi story access to the upper chambers, the moat with the turtles, and a...

This is a neat temple, very large and ornate. If you've been in Taiwan for long, it's easy to get "temple fatigue" from visiting/seeing so many temples, but this one is worth seeing if you have the time (it's a little way away from the city center). Probably half and hour or so is sufficient. However, if you come near... More

A beautiful well maintained temple. Architecture is fantastic and friendly local people, although they speak little English.

I'm the local at Luerhmen in Tainan. It's the biggest the temple in Taiwan, and the second one in the Asia. If you want to learn the temple culture in Taiwan, It's your first must-go place. After that, you must go to eat the fresh seafood in Chiku district,which is next to Luerhmen.

Staying in Anping District/ Annan District

Neighbourhood Profile
Anping District/ Annan District
Anping District is the area first developed in Taiwan. It is also the key to Taiwan’s involvement in the international community. The two famous historic monuments, Anping Fort (a.k.a. Fort Zeelandia) and Eternal Golden Castle leave behind them the traces of international trade made by various countries. Another historic monument that stands the test of time is Tree House, in which beautiful stories were created along with the running water in the canal in the course of history. The National Museum of Taiwan History in the form of green building stands in Annan District. Next to the coastal Cihcao Dajhong Temple is the amazingly gorgeous green tunnel formed by mangroves. Moving slowly in the river course on a pipe raft, you will be greeted by hermit crabs and mudskippers. The sunlight glitters in the woods. This will be like a tranquil journey in the no-man Amazon. What comes next is Luermen River estuary. People can enjoy the beautiful sunset in the Natural Defence of the Capital and also visit the one and only temple which has two barefooted door gods of foreign descent, guarding General Jheng Chengkong, making the trip to Tainan full of stories and mysteries.
