Introduce

Xun Fang Fort (巽方砲臺) is hidden away in a residential area, unknown even to many old Tainanese and, as such, it is veiled in mystery. It is the only remaining inland fort in Tainan. Located to the southeast of the Great East Gate, it was named “xun” because of its position in the eight divinatory trigrams. The fort was built from coral stone in 1836. The characters “Xun Fang Jing Zhen, (巽方靖鎮)” dating back to the reign of the Daoguang Emperor in the Qing Dynasty can be seen carved on the fort. To find this mysterious temple, go to Xiuchan Temple(修禪院) on Guanghua Street(光華街). The fort is located in its courtyard. Well-preserved, tourists can climb on top for a bird's- eye view and ponder on how the fort was once imposing and how it protected Tainan.

    隱身於修禪院的市定古蹟內陸砲台

    Traveler rating:3 2018-09

    巽方砲台為台南市的市定古蹟,長期隱身於修禪院內,也因如此砲台建築本身還維持得不錯,可看出是以珊瑚礁為建材砌成,中間門額有自清朝時期留下依舊清晰可見的刻字"巽方靖鎮"字樣,只不過長期在修禪院內,砲台外牆上多了許多佛家語錄,有些突兀。可經由樓梯到砲台上方看看。

    わざわざ行くことはないと思います。台南の三級古跡ですが整備されていません。扁額も修禅院になっているので砲台らしくありません。

    住所が光華街8號でピンの位置より林森路一段側です。位置は林森路と長榮路の三角公園の裏側です。もともと少し北西側にある有名な大東門(迎春門)の外側・巽の方角(八卦の東南の方角)に造られた砲台ですが荒れ果てていたのを修禅院が買い取り所有しています。朝に三角公園で運動するか、林森路一段側の農会超市(農協スーパー)で買い物して光華街迷い込むことがあれば見ることが出来ます。勿論迎春門から東門路を東に向かい右折し長榮路一段側に歩いて光華街に入って行けば見ることが出来ます。台湾の珊瑚や牡蠣殻、岩などを石灰で固めたコンクリに興味のある方は面白いかもしれませんが、それ以外の方にはお勧めできません。
