Introduce

Many people will begin to feel hungry when they hear the words Shuixian Temple Market(水仙宮市場). The market gets its name from Shuixian Temple, which enshrines Shui Xian Zun Wang(水仙尊王), which is inside the market. The original temple was built in 1703; this location was once Nanshi Harbor of the Five Channels and had a lot of merchants. The temple was actually built with funds provided by local merchants. The temple is no longer as large and imposing as it was when it was once one of the seven Buddhist temples and eight Taoist shrines of Tainan, in its place is a busy market. Don’t forget to go treasure hunting in the market if you visit Shuixian Temple; this is Tainan’s kitchen, with a wide variety of food available, as well as some long-established small restaurants hidden away. Visiting Shuixian Temple, you can explore the past and also fill your empty stomach after wandering through the local lanes and alleys.
