Introduce

Kaiyuan Temple(開元寺) is one of the main ancient temples of Tainan and was formerly Beiyuan Retreat(北園別館), which was built by Koxinga’s son Zheng Jing(鄭經) for his mother Empress Dong in 1680. With exquisite garden landscaping features, pavilions and buildings, plus a small winding bridge, Kaiyuan Temple’s Garden is viewed by many as the best in Taiwan. The temple preserves many cultural relics from the Ming Dynasty, making it a good place to learn about early Taiwan history. In recent years, a Buddhist academy, kindergarten and Tzu Ai Hospital have been established, bringing the temple closer to local people. It is a beautiful ancient temple that is involved in people’s daily lives.

    Nice Gate

    Traveler rating:2 2012-07

    The entrance gate is quite impressive and different from most in Taiwan but once you go inside, there isn't anything to really see.

    小時候的寺廟

    Traveler rating:4 2019-07

    這間寺廟也很有歷史了,小小的,但就是他的特色,依然保留著台南古時代的風格,附近有些商家小餐廳不錯吃,但是不大好停車就是。

    古いお寺

    Traveler rating:5 2018-06

    開元寺(カイイェンシー)は17世紀、鄭氏政権の「北園」でした。近くにも「北園街」や「開元路」という道路があります。清国のとき、清国政府が開元寺を建てました。けっこう長い歴史があります。 今は保育園、図書館、病院、又は老人福祉施設があります。地元のセンターとして住民の生活と結んでいるお寺でしょう。 観光客が少なくて、とでも静かなところです。

    清幽的百年佛寺

    Traveler rating:4 2018-07

    開元寺原名海會寺,見寺的歷史始於清朝。原本的建築物有些已經修建成水泥構造,甚是可惜。有別於道教的香火鼎盛,這間佛寺就顯得相當清幽。園區裡綠樹很多適合來散步。

    完全に地元の方の場所

    Traveler rating:4 2018-05

    台南駅の北東、徒歩で20分程度 他の観光スポットから外れていることもあり 観光客は全く見当たりませんが 熱心に参拝されている方は大いです。 現地の方がいかに宗教を大切にされ、 生活と結びついてるかを感じるには良いかも 台南滞在に飽きて 散歩に行くならオススメです。
