  • 高雄市區內,要看夜景就這邊了吧 近又方便,不過人滿多的 常常看到有人來拍婚紗,也有很多外國觀光客呢!! 有停車場在旁邊,不過人多,要碰運氣 
  • Even if you're not a believer to visit this wonderful Basilica architecture as a great ship in the Golden wood and where light enters through a beautiful stained-glass windows. Time of prayer for believers, meditation for others, the place is not heavy... It is a place of remembrance and tribute to the dead and to history. Broad field with courses... sacred cross, caves, meeting places. Must visit

  • The building and history is good there but it only has a few photos. The view of the harbor is beautiful. The park keeper is very nasty to dogs. Restroom is clean.

  • The place is pretty small. However worth to see the night view when nearby.
  • The shrine itself is beautiful. Be respective when visiting..do not talk or lough out loud. There is a spot outside of the shrine where you can have nice view of Kaohsiung. Plan half an hour to forty five minutes.
  • Kaohsiung Martyr's Shrine is the best spot to overlook the whole Kaohsiung city and the port. It used to be a Japanese Shinto shrine and change to a worshipping place.
  • Beautiful night view
  • Nice view of the Kaohsiung harbor.
