Beiji Xuantian Shangdi, Kaohsiung

3.0
Beiji Xuantian Shangdi claims to be the world's tallest waterside statue. Standing at 72 m (236 ft) tall, the imposing, vibrantly colored statue of the Xuantin God takes up much of your view as you make your way across a small bridge flanked by statues guarding the monument's entrance. The god holds a 38 m (124 ft) long sword in his right hand, known as the seven-star sword, and is also referred to as ‘the first sword in the world.’ You can also find a small temple of worship located right beneath the monument.

    Dragon Tiger Tower, followed by wuli Tower stream is able to go. I would like because it is visible from the Dragon Tiger Tower. The statue of a giant God power. Just ago the bridge was somehow doing karaoke. Guide it says, this indoor but not outdoor public karaoke's. But I feel a little out of place, Taiwan culture is 垣間見remashita at the same time.
