Da Tian Hou Gong, Tainan
(3.8/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Tainan vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Da Tian Hou Gong and other attractions in Tainan.

  • 到台南旅遊, 不得不到大天后宮求月老幫助因緣. 月老廟內有職員講解怎樣拜拜, 怎樣請求月老幫忙及得到紅線後的做法. 有興趣的還可以去蓋因緣符的印章隨身攜帶 
  • Utilityindustry law the Tin Hau Temple is near red Chihkan House. Is 300 years old building, but want to remain very beautiful. There was a description of Taiwan's oldest masobyo like.
