Dragon Tiger Tower, Kaohsiung
(3.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
The seven-story Dragon Tiger Tower stands as a strong example of traditional Kaohsiung style and culture. One of two towers built in 1976, it connects to the other by a bridge. This temple is marked by its yellow walls, orange tiles, and red pillars. In one of the towers you will find representations of the 12 Magi, Confucius, and Jade Emperor's palaces. Before scaling the site's spiral staircase, take a walk along the nearby lake and look out upon the Small Tortoise mountains and several pavilions.

  • 龍虎塔是蓮池潭的地標,從龍口入,虎口出,裡面有勸世人為善的浮雕,有警世的作用,登塔時要小心,樓梯面不寬,又是螺旋梯,要小心,登上塔頂可眺望整個蓮池潭,風景不錯。 
  • I came to Kaohsiung to come here! Walking pretty far from the left station! When is the end of October. Simply by walking still hot and tired. Lots of places! Many Japanese Dragon Tiger Tower. It seems to be a show off tourist buses at tourist attractions.

(Hehe) should go with her when she was a radiant heart climb up and look around! It was worth went through!
