Introduce

The Zheng Ancestral Shrine (鄭氏家廟)was built in 1663 by Zheng Jing, oldest son of Koxinga. It enshrines his father Koxinga and mother Concubine Dong. In recent years the outer wall has been removed, taking away the barrier between the path and road, allowing easier access for tourists. This shrine is another important place for learning about Koxinga in Tainan aside from Koxinga Shrine. The Main Hall enshrines Koxinga’s ancestors in China and overseas and his wife’s spirit tablet. Inside the shrine, god statues, the old building interior, ancient well and large number of old photographs take the tourists back to the days when the Zheng family ruled over Taiwan. It is a treasure chest of Taiwanese history.

    Koxinga Family Temple

    Traveler rating:3 2018-12

    Unlike many of the other temples which are bustling, this one on a rather busy street was fairly deserted the day we went. There wasn't much to see or do there, and we stopped briefly, remarked on the temple and moved on. If you're nearby, you might want to swing by to check it out, but facing Temple fatigue, you can easily skip this one.

    Small and simple

    This is a temple dedicated to Koxinga or Zheng Cheng Kong, who is a national hero of Taiwan. The temple is rather small and simple. It tells you about his birthplace, which was in Japan.

    Temple of Koxinga’s family

    Traveler rating:3 2018-11

    This is a temple of Koxinga’s family. It is relatively small, and as I visited, there are only few visitors. At the entrance, there is a statue of Koxinga with his mother who is a Japanese.

    Lovely little temple

    Traveler rating:5 2017-03

    We stopped by and we're really lucky to meet the resident caretaker. Fortunately my husband speaks Chinese as the gentleman was incredibly informative and explained so many things about the temple and historical facts. He was so friendly and more than happy to answer all of our questions 😊

    日本人の血を感じる廟所

    Traveler rating:4 2019-08

    鄭成功といえば、高校「日本史B」で近松門左衛門の作品として習った「国姓爺合戦」で記憶がとまっていましたが、考えてみれば、おそらくアジア人でヨーロッパ諸国を破った最初期の人というだけでなく、そのオランダを駆逐して台南(安平)を拠点に台湾の基礎を築いた大英雄ですね。そんな大英雄が日本人の血を引いているなんて痛快です。この慎ましやかな廟所の佇まいにも日本人の血を感じたりしました。
