Introduce

Located on Shennong Street(神農街), Jinhua Temple(金華府) was built in 1830, it is said by a man named Hsu of one of the five clans of the Five Channels, and it is also the guardian temple of the Xu family. It enshrines Guan Sheng Di Jun and two wangye (Royal Lords), Ma and Li. Not many temples have “fu”(mansion/palace) in their name like this one. As Shennong Street was one of the streets of the Five Channels, it is quite narrow. Restricted by its street house form, Jinhua Temple is quite small. It has been rebuilt a few times but retains almost the same look. After dark, the temple door is closed and the yellow streets lights come on, complementing the red lanterns of the temple and creating a classical charm. The door nails that are in place of Door Gods shine beautifully on the red door under the lights, creating an enchanting vintage atmosphere.

    Day Market Temple ....

    Traveler rating:4 2018-12

    In the five canals neighborhood, we were looking for the Wind Temple (which I'm not sure we ever found) and instead stumbled upon the Jinhua Temple, which is the only temple so far that we have seen that is immersed in the hubbub of the day market, which was, as far as these things go, a fairly clean (smell and hygiene wise) food area. We found bananas there for a decent price. The temple itself is one of the smallest ones we've encountered and humble in its presentation. It's not part of the LP walking tour, but is listed on the Tainan city map of temple stops. Now ... if we could only find the wind temple?!?

    Small but interesting temple

    Traveler rating:4 2015-10

    This temple is relatively small but contains a number of interesting statues. When we visited there was no one else in the temple which was good for looking around the temple and taking photos without feeling you were intruding on the local worshippers.

    神農街上的地方廟宇

    Traveler rating:4 2019-05

    金華府為台南知名觀光熱點神農街上的廟,為早期自泉州渡海來五條港地區(神農街一帶)移民者將故鄉神明帶來此奉祀所建立,因此屬於地方性的廟宇,規模不大,也沒有太多外地的信徒,卻也保持住該廟的莊嚴氣氛。近年來重...

    神農街にあります

    Traveler rating:3 2019-03

    神農街の中ほどにあるこじんまりとしたお寺です。よくみかける廟に比べても小さいのですが、雰囲気が神農街にマッチした感じでいい感じです。廟としての見どころ感はそれほどないですが、通りの散策ついでにはいいと思います。

    神農街を散策途中

    Traveler rating:4 2019-03

    水仙宮側から神農街に入って左側にあります。大きくはありませんが、日本の神社とと同じような地域の人びとから信仰されている氏神さまのような印象を受けました。 そんなに遅い時間帯だとは思えなかったのですが人通りが少なかったのでちょっと重い雰囲気も感じました。
