Introduce

A church with a white dome that is a copy of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London is hidden down an alley on Kuohua Street. This place is of great significance in terms of the history of the meeting of Tainan and Westerners. This was where Dr. James Laidlaw Maxwell(馬雅各醫師) practiced medicine and spread Christianity after arriving in Tainan in 1865. At the time, this was an important street in the Five Channels area. As the street runs west, it was called “Kanshi Street.” The doctor-missionary was forced to leave not long after arriving after encountering resistance from local traditionalists. When he returned in 1868, he carried on treating patients and doing missionary work on the site of today’s Sin Lau Hospital. KSK Church (看西街教會) was completed in 1951. When passing Shuixian Temple Market(水仙宮市場), don’t forget to seek out this beautiful church hidden away down an alley.

    台南老巷弄裡的驚喜

    Traveler rating:4 2019-11

    在台南舊市區水仙宮市場附近的小巷內,矗立一幢仿英國倫敦聖保羅大教堂,立面相當氣派的白色圓頂教會建築,與週遭老舊建築相對比,非常顯眼與眾不同,且有莊嚴神聖的氣氛。晚上打上燈光,有另一種溫暖的感覺,值得前...

    卓然肅立

    Traveler rating:4 2019-01

    在海安路附近,隱身在周圍的大樓裡,但華麗莊嚴的外觀又使它卓然肅立,不與世俗的建築混淆。有一股沉靜神聖的氣氛。

    真っ白な教会

    Traveler rating:3 2018-09

    永楽市場からほど近く、国華街のにぎやかな飲食店を覗きながら歩いているうちに、いつのまにか、この教会のある通りにでました。眩しいぐらい真っ白な美しい教会です。円柱も立派。南国調の木が前にあるのが台南っぽい風景です。
