Martyrs' Shrine, Kaohsiung

(4.1/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)

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.

  • Go by bus from the side of a mountain and you're at on the stairs. "Martyr's shrine" is hard to fine stairs and go up, the Observatory and the characteristics of stone gate "gate? "Outside. Unlike Taipei's "martyr's shrine", guards in sight, and feeling. And prayed quietly. View from the observation deck, is amazing and will see Kaohsiung city views from the Gulf. For some reason, Prospect Park, "parent-child monkey statue" was worried about.

  • 其實我哋想去情人觀景台 ,我們搭的士去,但係的士司機唔知道。後來我們才知道原來要講忠烈祠佢哋先至識去。 情人觀景台係忠烈祠隔嚟,睇夜景最好, 好浪漫。搭巴士去的話一定要留意時刻表  more »
  • 有山又有海,感受得出風景很漂亮,也是個很適合看夜景的地方,可惜空氣很髒...霧茫茫的,只能看到近處的景色。  more »

  • 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.
