Da Tian Hou Gong, Tainan

3.9
See the place where royal dynasties once resided at Da Tian Hou Gong. Built in the 17th century, the temple now functions as a place of worship dedicated to the goddess Matsu, but a long time ago it served as a palace for kings and emperors. Learn about their days spent living here and hear gruesome tales, such as the story of the five concubines who hanged themselves in the main hall. Check out the etchings of mythical beings, found all around the building, altars, statues, and other decorations that exist both inside and out of the temple.

Where to stay in Tainan

The long established city of Tainan offers plentiful accommodations for the range of visitors it receives each year. Primarily located to the west of the main train station, hotels range from the luxurious to the basic, and everywhere in between. Overlooking green areas or the canals, the most glamorous among the options here come in old and new buildings, while the more budget-friendly--including youth hostels, guesthouses, and simple hotels--occupy side streets close to the main transport hubs and historic buildings.
