  • Located in Kaohsiung's Shou Park Shou Shan Gong Yuen to Huber. Where the Takao Shrine at prewar days had said. Visited early in the morning on a tour, first go to the Observatory in Kaohsiung City and port, then opens 8:00 the martyr's shrine, a shrine. As this area is military facility, it seems there is so far not approached.

  • It is a shrine. That and the former site of the shrine in Japan. A quiet place is quietly certain feeling. Well turns out that Kaohsiung's port city overlooking the city.

  • 我們沒有開車,可是在google map上查了一下,發現只要20分鐘就可以到了,所以就沒想什麼就開始用走的去了。 後來,真的是非常後悔。也不知道為什麼,明明是冬天,卻非常熱。那條路非常的斜,而且幾乎沒有讓行人走的路,身旁的機車和車子都非常的快,很危險。所以還是建議大家打車或開車去。 上到去,其實love那個字還是挺值得拍的啦XD 可惜的是我去的那一天霧很大,所以沒有什麼景觀可言

  • 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.
