Da Tian Hou Gong, Tainan

3.7
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. A visit to Da Tian Hou Gong represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tainan trip itinerary maker tool to plot your vacation.

  • Mazu, Goddess of the sea, of our Lady were enshrined. Corner can make in their own talismans and other temples are no novelty.
