Introduce

Guan Di Temple is an extremely well-known temple that was rebuilt as a large temple in 1817 after worshippers believed Tai Zi Tai Bao Wang(太子太保王) had indicated that they should do this; however, a temple has existed on the site during the reign of the Yongli Emperor in the Ming Dynasty dating back to the mid-1600s, giving it a very long history. Entering the temple, two lofty banyan trees, one on the left and one on the right, can be seen; called the Dragon and Phoenix Ancient Banyans(龍鳳古榕), one has long fibrous roots, the other has none, so they are said to be male and female; they are like male and female servants always at the side of Guan Sheng Di Jun(Lord Guan). Despite attracting many worshippers, inside the temple has a tranquil, calming atmosphere. Guan Di Temple is an extremely important belief center in the East District of Tainan.
