Introduce

The temple is the belief center of Tucheng. Every tourist is impressed by the large and magnificent building, the design of which is based on the Forbidden City in Beijing. It is known as the biggest temple in the Far East. A huge heavenly general statue stands either side of the temple square, they are Shun Feng Er (With-the-Wind Ear)) and Qian Li Yan (Thousand Miles Eye) (順風耳與千里眼). Standing in front of the beautiful temple under blue sky, they are as powerful as if the gods had descended to earth. Orthodox Luermen Shengmu (Mazu) Temple’s (正統鹿耳門聖母廟) best-known event is the international high-altitude fireworks show held on Lantern Festival which has become a must-attend Lantern Festival event in Tainan, attracting as many people as Yanshui Beehive Fireworks. To occupy a good place to photograph the beautiful fireworks it’s best to arrive early.

    Fantastic fireworks! I have came here twice for continuous two years.

    It will held a grand sky firework in Lantern Festival for each year. It will attract thousand of people to visit. In that day, the temple has a parade, and many vendors will come which form a night market, making the night flourishing. Moreover, there is Beehive firecrackers for celebrating. It must be careful!

    Very Ornate

    Traveler rating:3 2017-10

    It seems that in Taiwan and Vietnam, there are many temples. This one is very ornate, large and is worth a visit. Again a local guide gives you the best understanding of the history.

    I went there by number 99 bus. On winter/summer Vacation, the bus goes every hour, it takes about 40 min from Chicken tower. Huge, beautiful, worth to visit. I hope to visit again

    A huge temple with interesting art

    Traveler rating:4 2017-01

    I liked this place, but not too much. I have seen a few more interesting and beautiful temples, this one is special because it's huuuge and impressive, but sometimes I culdn't avoid the feeling of tackiness. For instance the two huge figures in front spoil the view. Also I visited it during the New Year and there was a lady singing cheesy Taiwanese songs very loudly which spoiled the experience for me. But yes, this place is big, it has three floors and three or more buildings visitors can see, so definitely it will impress someone who hasn't seen many Chinese style temples before.

    Ancient Temple

    Traveler rating:4 2016-08

    Maybe I visited too many temples in Taiwan and China, so its just another temple for me. For Western or travellers, should go and visit.
