Introduce

Da Guanyin Temple(大觀音亭) was built in 1678 and was the first temple in Taiwan to enshrine Guanyin Bodhisattva. Xingji Temple, which enshrines Bao Sheng Da Di (BaoshengEmperor) and was built in 1679, is on the same site, creating the unusual situation of Buddhist and Daoist temples together. Entering Da Guanyin Temple, the solemn and imposing Two Generals Heng and Ha(哼哈二將) can be seen on each side; Guanyin Bodhisattva, wearing a serene expression, is in the middle, giving people a feeling of peace and harmony. Seeking the help of the God of Marriage (月老)has become popular in Tainan in recent years, and the God of Marriage enshrined in Da Guanyin Temple receives many people seeking help in finding a wife/husband. The statue of the God of Marriage in the temple has the biggest mouth of the four God of Marriage statues in Tainan; believers say the big mouth helps him be heard far and wide; he is the most successful at matchmaking and to date has matched a large number of men and women, and is nicknamed the “matchmaking Guanyin”. Aside from Guanyin Pusa, the God of Marriage is also a “star” god of Da Guanyin Temple.
