Koxinga Shrine, Tainan
(4.1/5 based on 35 reviews on the web)
Koxinga Ancestral Shrine is a family shrine built in Tainan City, Taiwan in 1663 by Zheng Jing, to worship his father Koxinga.

When Taiwan became part of the Qing Empire, it was renamed \"The Cheng's Ancestral Shrine\" and today the official name is \"Ancestral Shrine of Koxinga\". The complex is traditional and elegant. There is an old well in front of the gate and this is all that remains of the original shrine.

The central hall worships the statue of Koxinga as well as the spirit tablets of each generation of ancestors. In 1771, there was a famous wooden tablet with the character \"Three Generations Heritage\" to prize the virtue of Koxinga's family.

In this shrine, there is also a sculpture of young Koxinga and his mother Tagawa Matsu.
