    The exterior of this temple is very majestic and grand. The decorations were very detailed and intricate. Lots of vibrant colours, which makes a great photograph.

    One of the oldest temples in Tainan

    Traveler rating:4 2015-01

    When we visited Anping, it happened to be the day of the birth of the Guanyin Goddess. We were visiting the Old Street that was lined up with the many food stalls and then we came to the Guanyin Street and saw few colorful wreaths placed prominently outside a temple. Initially, I thought it was some funeral held at the vicinity but the wordings on the wreaths indicated that it was the birthday of Guanyin and the temple was Anping Guanyin Temple. In Malaysia or Singapore, we do not have the custom of placing wreaths outside a temple to celebrate the birthday of a God or Goddess. Tainan has a different culture from us. I strolled into the temple and found it was quite a magnificent one with the many Taoist deities. Beside the Guanyin Goddess, there are the 18 Arhats, the Monkey God, the Fortune God and the Earth God. There were many food offerings on the altar table in celebration of the birthday of the Goddess. The main hall is relatively small and smoky from the many lighted incense sticks and the devotees who came here on that day were quite a handsome of them and the hall was crowded. The temple was built in 1826 by fishermen from the Fukien Province. Over the years, it has been reconstructed and renovated and it is one of the most prominent temples in Tainan. Goddess Guanyin, an iconic symbol of Mahayana Buddhism is highly regarded by the migrants here as one Goddess that bless them with good fortune and peace and away from calamities and disasters. I am glad to have the affinity to come across with this temple and we entered the hall to offer our prayers.

    安平老街を散策中に見つけたお寺。大きくはありませんが屋根も柱も装飾が華やかで立派。壁面の色も鮮やかでとても綺麗でした。 安平の漁民が中国から持ち帰ったあと建設したと言われる観音様が祀られているそうです。
