  • Went to this attraction with high expectations, bit of a let down. Quite interesting, but not a great deal to see. Would imagine the festival when they drag a Wale to the Temple would be incredible, b...  more »
  • Agree with most revues that this temple should be visited with a tour guide as there is very little information. It is a small temple but comes with a fascinating history and annual festival.  more »

  • 鯨魚廟建於西元1824年,供奉長28公尺鯨魚骨骸,也稱「南海翁陵」,約140年前,一艘漁船在海上遇難,被一隻鯨魚拖回岸邊,漁民因而獲救,但鯨魚因擱淺而犧牲,漁民並建廟供奉,每年農曆8月16到8月18日舉行鯨魚誕,船隻裝上燈飾在海上遶行迎接鯨魚到來,節日也祭拜先賢和其他神靈等儀式。
  • Something we haven't seen in 40 years of travel: a temple dedicated to a whale with an actual whale skeleton
  • Very nice whale temple. A story tale behind this, how whale save them. But those whale bones are belongs to a group of whales stranded.
  • Special religion
  • Shrine China-this place is definitely worth a visit! Inside the temple you'll see 18-meter skeleton of a whale. Very beautiful temple! Take a peek here, definitely not regret it. Next to the temple is very much a local pigeon baited them. You can make a very nice photo with pigeons))
