Kaiji Yonghua Temple(開基永華宮)

Traveler rating:3.5 8 Reviews 4.5




When visiting the Confucian temple (孔廟) area, taking a stroll around the sights and sounds of Fuzhong Street (府中街) should not be overlooked. Try one of the famous fried instant noodle shops from within the brimming alley and from where you can also smell the incense that wafts from the nearby temple. This temple is the Yonghua Temple (永華宮), dedicated to the the GuangzeZunwang (Guangze King), and was originally a place that enshrined General Chen yonghua (陳永華). After the death of General Chen Yonghua, the people began to recall fondly the contributions that he made towards Taiwanese culture and education, and the name of the temple was changed to the Yonghua Temple is his honor. Within the temple are numerous texts and objects of cultural significance related to offering sacrifices to the gods or ancestors, as well as delicate mural paintings which vividly illustrate the elevation to deity status of GuangzeZunwang; a legendary tale which is still discussed enthusiastically even in the present day. There is a close relationship between the Yonghua Temple and Fuzhong Street, and at the temple entrance there are frequently religious ceremonies, tourist activities, or games being held, making the area a real focal point of the local community. Leading people to solve riddles nearby the Confucius Temple, and the sensory experience of leaving the alleyway in front of the temple and entering into the narrow gate is worth experiencing for oneself.

    2017年11月に台南を旅行した際に立ち寄りました。 孔子廟からほど近い賑やかな孔廟商圈から一歩入った路地にあるお宮です。孔子廟に向かう途中にお土産物屋や露店が建ち並ぶ孔廟商圈を通った時 ちょっと寄ってみました。地元に密着した小さなお宮です。

    孔子廟の前の南門路を渡って静かな府中街の路地の最初の小径を右に曲がったところにありました。 恐らく地元の方以外はお参りする人もいないと思われます。 地元に密着してひっそりと存在している廟です。
