Vibrant temple; right next to Anping FortWe visited Tianhou / Anping MatsuTemple as it is the first main temple you see as you exit Anping fort gates. An incredibly intricate and beautiful temple with its origins dating back from 1668 (although last rebuilt in 1994), this the largest temple in the area. It was very busy with worshippers paying their respects whilst we visited and it is free admission.
Beautiful and elegantThis is a very huge and beautiful temple located next to the entrance of Anping Fort. The exterior is very majestic. A short visit of 15 minutes should be sufficient to appreciate its beauty.
Big templeThere are many Tianhou Temple in Taiwan, but this one in Anping is on a big scale. The decorations are colorful and photogenic. This temple is located just beside the entrance of Anping Fort. So, you can visit at the same time. The entrance is free.
Tourist friendly templeAnping Kaitai Matsu Temple was a colorful temple but there wasn’t much to set it apart from a typical Buddhist temple in Taiwan. However, it was very tourist friendly with explanations in English posted in every section and even outlining a worshipping route within the temple.
