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.

Anything modelled on temples and shrines in Japan during the occupation of Japan, the renovated so that may be why.

  • 位於台南市中心區,為全台最具規模主祀鄭成功的廟宇。廟宇本身為民國52年自原閩南式改建成中國北方式的建築,故未列入為國定古蹟,但仍為台南市歷史建築。延平郡王祠包含主祠、庭園及鄭成功文物館,為台南重要的觀光景點,可以了解台灣開發歷史。周遭大街小巷內有許多台南特色小吃與餐廳,參觀完延平郡王祠後可以大快朵頤。
