Martyrs' Shrine, Gushan

4.0
The moderately difficult hike to Martyrs' Shrine seems utterly worth it once you arrive and catch a glimpse of the scenic views. From the panoramic viewing decks, you can enjoy vistas over the whole city of Kaohsiung, as well as the harbor, the clear ocean, and the towering mountains. The vibrant shrine serves as a favorite place for couples in particular, but you can also see many friends and families spending time out in the nature. Wander through the colorful gardens filled with a rich diversity of flowers and other plants, taking some time to enjoy the nature around you and the light, refreshing breeze.

  • It has very beautiful night view of port of Kaohsiung! Definitely recommend to visit, especially at night if you can.  more »
  • It should be apart from the best night view of the local airport, and sometimes many people, especially when the weather is good, can almost see the whole of Kaohsiung in the night, overlooking the past is great.

  • It is a shrine to a memorial service for soldiers of the Kuomintang army. Panel on the history of the Republic, the war there had been posted on the walls of the corridors is up to Japan since. Civil war was through.

  • If you come frome east asia, like japan korea china. You can be little bit dissapointed with the temple. Because it doesn't look special. But this temple has great view too. You should come. But if you are from other contries. You will like both.
  • In my opinion there is nothing much to see here. It has an okay view but very relaxing location. You can relax on the cold marble floor, other than that, just hike further to the zoo nearby
  • it's quite place for relaxing and take a deep breath while watching the sunset on the sea
  • Nice view! Highly recommended to visit, but it’s hard to arrive without a vehicle
  • Come here at night for the whole city view. Come here at daytime for visiting the shrine.
