Introduce

When talking about famous plaques in Tainan,the phrase "Understanding the World(了然世界)", displayed at Zhuxi Temple(竹溪寺), springs to mind. Built in 1661, Zhuxi Temple is Taiwan's earliest Buddhist temple, and along with Mituo Temple, Kaiyuan Temple and Fahua Temple (彌陀寺、開元寺、法華寺), it is one of Tainan's four old Buddhist temples. In 1693 Zhuxi College was attached to the temple. In the festival season it attracted lots of scholars and tourists to enjoy the scenery and read poetry. Although the landscape of that time can no longer be seen, the neighboring temple has a beautiful stream scenery that remains unchanged. Egrets can often be seen here foraging, and both banks of the stream a recovered by trees. It is next to the sports park, and attracts many people from the nearby area to go for walks.

    正在改建中的古寺

    Traveler rating:3 2018-08

    竹溪寺為台南四大古剎之一,已有三百多年歷史,就位在流經台南體育公園的竹溪畔,不過目前正在改建中,部份已完工,為現代化的建築,感覺不出古色古香的氣氛。預計2021年改建完工,相信會提供更好的環境讓信徒參拜。

    この寺院もひっそりとしたところにあります

    Traveler rating:4 2017-01

    ちょっとしたひっそりとあるような寺院です。どちらかといえば現地の人々らがこの寺院を訪れてきております。 この寺院も築200年くらいはあろうかと思います。
