  • Spectacular. Come very early (to avoid crowds) or very late ( to enjoy night views).
  • It's a beautiful and quiet place. There is an observatory deck not too far away in walking distance, for a good view of Kaohsiung City. Just note on the mosquitoes.
  • Came up here for the view, due to bad air pollution which covered half of the city, still pretty but looks foggy tho. I saw people rode their bike, its good for cycling but kinda dangerous to me as some people here dont quite follow traffic rules. 😩
  • 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.
  • The place is pretty small. However worth to see the night view when nearby.
