Taoist templeYes, we also followed the Lonely Planet advice and visited the temple. It's quite ambient, the abacus is interesting - as claimed it was used to calculate whether you have done more good than bad in life.
Top LP Taoist Temple Pick ...Like several of the key sites, this temple is undergoing a bit of a face lift. One of the key features is the giant abacus just as you walk into the doorway. In the back, there's a huge furnace where they burn the paper worshipers bring as offerings. Also a little bit of green area to sit and (as always it seems) spacious bathrooms. I'm not sure why this temple is a "Must see" in the LP world, but we were not disappointed that we made the effort to go.
Oldest Chenghuan MiaoIn almost every city, there is a temple called Chenghuan Miao. But this one in Tainan is the oldest one in Taiwan with 300 years of history.
Very spectacular and beautiful.In front of the hall, the stone pillars are with impressive dragon sculptures, and there are sculptures of fishermen, carpenters, farmers and scholars.Very spectacular and beautiful.

A lovely temple.This is a lovely little temple in central Tainan. The temple is located on a busy street, with an odd square in front of it. Inside, the temple is full of flowers, candles and gilded figures.
